Yohan Cabaye ‘I Was Very Scared’

8 years ago

On Saturday night, PSG beat Lille 3-1 but a challenge by Marvin Martin on Yohan Cabaye was the big story of the match.

The ex-Newcastle midfielder was carried off with concerns that his World Cup hopes were at an end.

In this Le Parisien article (thanks as always to Pierre for the much appreciated translation) earlier today, it has updated where Cabaye is at after the shocker of a challenge that led to Martin being given a red card;

Yohan Cabaye : “J’ai eu très peur” (“I was very scared”)

‘The latest medical news is good. The x rays showed no hairline fracture or fracture, but only a hard blow on the ankle ligament. He needs to rest for one to two weeks. “It’s reassuring”, he had mentioned later in the night. “Marvin is a person I like. It’s part of football, even though I was very scared! “

His return to Paris on crutches is expected tonight. Further examinations should be scheduled midweek before he begins his rehabilitation while his colleagues are on the training grounds on Wednesday at the Camp des Loges (PSG’s training ground) .

But for the former Newcastle player , the most important thoughts lay elsewhere.

“At the time of the incident, my first thoughts went to the World Cup”, admitted Yohan Cabaye, questioned yesterday on the Stade 2 programme.

“I was very scared and I was waiting to know the extent of what I had. I saw that Marvin was genuinely concerned. I told him I did not hold anything against him, it’s part of the game. He is not a dirty player.”
