Newcastle Star Passed Fit For Club and Country

8 years ago

While he continues to ignore the talents of Hatem Ben Arfa, manager of France, Didier Deschamps, is undoubtedly a big fan of Yohan Cabaye.

Deschamps was relieved to pass on the news that our midfielder will be available for their crucial qualifier against Spain on Tuesday.


“Yohan Cabaye trained normally yesterday (Saturday) so there’s no problem”.

Obviously for our own more pressing needs such as the mackems up next, it is great to hear that Cabaye should be fit to play alongside Cheick Tiote as they aim to belatedly pick up their very productive partnership from last season.

At least with the derby game being on Sunday, Alan Pardew will have a little extra time to get his team ready for what most of us see as one of the two most important matches of the season.
