Demba Ba Gets His ‘Reward From God’ And It Isn’t Coming Back To Newcastle

8 years ago

Maybe the most pointless transfer speculation of recent days has been the one where Demba Ba was allegedly a serious prospect to come back to St.James’ Park.

This story tends to crop up every couple of months as predictably Demba Ba has not been a regular starter under Jose Mourinho.

The chances, to me, of Ba choosing to return to Newcastle were non-existent, never mind the thought of Mike Ashley meeting the kind of wage demands that led to Ba leaving United.

However, all of this could be immaterial if Mourinho makes good on what he has said to the player.

Demba Ba quoted as follows in The Sun;

“Jose Mourinho has asked me to stay next season and he assured me my situation would change.

“I see this as my reward from God – I want to play a lot of matches and think that will be the case for me.”
