Ex-French international and Arsenal player, Robert Pires, has been nudging Debuchy towards Newcastle United.
Pires told French publication ‘Le 10 Sport’;
Newcastle would be a very good club for him because he would find his friends [Yohan] Cabaye and Hatem Ben Arfa.
Also, they are one of the top English clubs, with a history and a beautiful stadium. For him and the rest of his career, they would be a nice stepping stone”.
So on the one hand he is telling Pires, Newcastle are ‘…one of the top English clubs, with a history and a beautiful stadium’, gave me a bit of a feelgood factor that did.
Only then to be brought right back down to earth when United are also described as a ‘…nice stepping stone‘.
You know Robert, sometimes people just don’t know when to stop talking!
