Better News For Newcastle On Wigan Injury

9 years ago

Alan Pardew has confirmed that he’s allowed Mathieu Debuchy join up with the French squad, even though he believes the player is almost sure to head back to Tyneside after assessments.

The better news though is that Pardew doesn’t think the injury is a ‘particularly bad one’ and hopes he’ll be ok for our next Premier League match at Manchester City.

Speaking to the Shields Gazette, Alan Pardew had this to say;

“We are sending him (Debuchy) to France, he is in the squad and it is their right to assess him.

I don’t think there will be any other conclusion than for him to come back, hopefully for Manchester City.

We don’t think it is a particularly bad one”.

On a day when not much went right for United, the injury problems all started when Mathieu Debuchy pulled up with a hamstring injury.

I just hope that by coming straight off the player has ensured it will be a quick return to the team, as he has looked better and better with every game.
