Demba Ba Pulls Out Of Senegal Match
No reason has been announced but hopefully it is not serious and just the player making sure he is ok for Newcastle’s crucial match against Swansea, rather than some meaningless friendly.
Alan Pardew did comment after the West Ham match;
“Demba was struggling with his shin a bit”.
With hopefully the player just requiring rest to see him ok for Swansea.
As Newcastle’s main supplier of goals this season it doesn’t bear thinking about being without the Senegal striker for any length of time. Especially having already walked the tightrope that saw Cheick Tiote heading off to the African Cup of Nations in the new year, rather than both Demba and his striking partner, Papiss Cisse.
