Cabaye Says Five Latest Signings Are Key To New Season
No doubt a lot of people will be grateful that the players are returning to action, with the squad doing so in a staggered way for pre-season training, which will at least allow for some focus on the players rather than certain other ‘characters’ within the club.
One key figure is obviously Yohan Cabaye, much speculation has followed him over the summer in regard to possible moves but today he has spoken positively about the new season and learning from the mistakes that blighted the team and club last campaign.
Speaking to the official NUFC website, Cabaye started by answering a question posed as to whether the January signings would feel the benefit of a pre-season;
“I think so because the new players who came in January are going to have more time to adapt to the Premier League style.
Hopefully we are going to have some time to prepare well for next season and to be fit for a big part of the season, because that is going to be important to play for a place near the top of the league.
It was a difficult season for us, we started quite well and then had a big hole where we were losing a lot of games, but we fought together and stayed together and we fought to be a Premier League squad next season.
We have to leave from our mistakes but the main thing was safety and the club staying in the Premier League. So it was a hard and difficult season but I think for the future, it is going to be interesting because we learnt a lot.”
Those five players we signed in January could be key to the coming season, especially if as appears likely, Mike Ashley sees them as our key signings for the coming season rather than many extra players on top.
Have a bet on Newcastle United next season – something for everybody!
