PSG Fans Give Their Views On Signing Cabaye

7 years ago

Yohan Cabaye is likely to dominate many of the transfer headlines surrounding Newcastle United in the coming weeks and as fans there isn’t much we can do about that.

Interesting though to look at the thoughts of fans of the club that is most heavily linked with our French playmaker.

So what do PSG fans think of a return to France for a mainstay of their national team? Some of the comments from the PSG fans’ forum may surprise you;

‘Good player for the PSG but who could at the same time maybe have enough French players in the team.’

‘Cabaye is a good choice but I feel Monaco will be quicker in getting him.’

 ‘Good player but not a great player, who is 27 years old, he is the symbol of the French team, but last year PSG bought some great players and can ill afford to just buy good.  We need exceptional players with potential.’

 ‘He is French, that’s good.’

 ‘Cabaye would be a good recruitment but Thiago is better.’

So a bit like Chelsea and Manchester City where fans have had their expectations massively distorted simply because somebody decides to pour ridiculous amounts of money into transfers, so it is now at PSG and Monaco in Ligue 1.

The comments tend to have a theme of thinking Cabaye is a good player but now they expect to aim above that level, even if Yohan is one of their countrymen.

Thanks yet again to Pierre for the translation services.
