NUFC Strike Target – ‘Newcastle Rumours Are Nonsense’

8 years ago

Newcastle United have been linked with every man and his dog this summer and predictably, a fair proportion of them have been French based.

One who took up a fair few column inches was Marseille striker Andre-Pierre Gignac.

It appears that there was at least some contact from Newcastle but interesting to see what the player has had to say to L’Equipe over the channel;

“I have just finished a good season after two very complicated ones, I scored 18 goals in all competitions (total of 9 league goals in previous 24 months).

After that do you think I am wanting to shift course, that I am going? Then you don’t know me, I have never had any intention of leaving, never.

Newcastle and all the rest of the rumours are nonsense.

I was always staying at OM (Marseille) even after my first two seasons that were crap!

These rumours don’t destabilise me.

We talked about Newcastle but even if it was Real Madrid my response would have been the same; I want to do better with OM.”
