It’s good news that Papiss Cisse is fully fit again and he says he feels very very good after training all week – and he’s one player who could start scoring the goals for us during the run-in.
Four years ago at this time after joining us from SC Freiburg for around £9M he scored 13 goals in his first 14 appearances for the side and that kind of goal-scoring would guarantee Newcastle stay up this season.
Papiss Cisse – fully fit again
This is what Papiss has said about being out so long injured this season:
“It’s difficult for my mind. It’s very difficult.” “I need to be positive. I know I’ve had injuries. I need to work hard with the physios. They do a good job.”
“For me, I need to be focused. It’s not easy, but it’s the only way I can go.” “I’m very, very good. I feel good. I train all week.”
“I’m here and I have a chance to train all week during the international break.”
Papiss picked up the groin injury in the first half in the home game against bottom of the league Aston Villa back on 19th December, which ended in a 1-1 draw and that was two more points dropped by Newcastle.
Papiss has been out for about 15 weeks with the groin injury.
But it’s very good to have him back.
