Debuchy One Step Closer To Move?

8 years ago

Earlier this week Mathieu Debuchy revealed how he’d, “Fought for weeks”, in the summer to try and force a move to Newcastle United, only for Lille to refuse to release him.

Conducting the interview was French football legend, Bixente Lizarazu, and concluding the interview he gave this insight from a Lille club insider;

He (Mathieu Debuchy) is a great professional, in similar situation players would have clashed with the management but he thinks team before anything, he did not just think about himself, he has not forced the issue, he has accepted the decision and it is very good for the group’.

The president and Rudi Garcia are both very intelligent people who have a great relationship with Mathieu and he did it with respect. They will remember that and when he has another opportunity I am sure that they will not veto his departure and it will be done positively”.

Last night (Wednesday) Lille were demolished 6-1 in their Champions League match against Bayern Munich and with zero points from four matches they are out of the Champions League and have virtually no chance of even the Europa League consolation.

With Lille only in eighth position in the league and their Champions League dream over, surely it will now suit all three parties to see Debuchy at last get the move he ‘fought for’ so strongly in the summer.
