Cabaye “I Cannot Believe The Last 12 Months”

10 years ago

Before the Euros so much attention was paid to Hatem Ben Arfa, it was maybe easy to forget that Newcastle’s Yohan Cabaye was the United player who was nailed on to start for France.

Our gifted French midfielder has arguably been his country’s top performer so far and capped his man of the match performance off against Ukraine with a classy goal and was unlucky to see another effort hit the woodwork.

As France face their final group match against Sweden later today, Cabaye has been reflecting on the last year;

Sometimes I cannot believe what has happened to me over the last 12 months. It has been incredible.

To score a goal for my country at a major championship is something that I dreamed about. It was a great moment for me.

I had a fantastic season in England where I managed to settle into my new life and I feel I have come out of it a much better player. So let’s see where we can go in the Euros because every game is different and difficult”.

Depending on how far France go in the Euros, Cabaye could end up one of the stars of the tournament and maybe this will be a better case scenario  for all Newcastle fans than if Ben Arfa was in his position as I have absolutely no doubt Yohan Cabaye will be back again in August in the engine room at St.James’ Park.

Hopefully Ben Arfa will still also get his chance to impress at the Euros…in a supporting role to Yohan Cabaye.
