(Another!) Latest Debuchy Twist – Player Demands Talks

8 years ago

Whether or not Newcastle do actually ever land Mathieu Debuchy, it looks as though he certainly doesn’t see his future at Lille.

Following both his Chairman and Coach telling him that he’s going nowhere and now has to concentrate on Lille’s coming season, Debuchy has instead demanded talks about his future.

“I called the President and I left him a message, to ask him to clarify the situation for me. I do not understand.

One day they told me that they cannot let me go because the club didn’t find a successor for me.

Then another day because the offer is insufficient from Newcastle. One day it is the coach who is blocking me, and then the next day it is the President.

I am still determined to find something else, another experience, and I would like to speak with the President to make it clear between us”.

When a possible transfer deal goes on this long and ends up in a public slanging match, they very rarely kiss and make up.

For now (5 minutes???) we’ll just have to wait and see.
