Mathieu Debuchy Says He’ll Consider His Future After World Cup

7 years ago

While I love to see all Newcastle players do well for their countries, my heart does sink when players such as Mathieu Debuchy are flying for France.

On the back of a couple of excellent performances in Brazil, Debuchy has now told reporters that he is missing the Champions League and will look at his club position after the World Cup ends.

Mathieu Debuchy;

“It is European Cup competition I miss, specifically the Champions League.

Right now I’m focused on the World Cup, after we’ll see.”

The United right-back stated before the World Cup that his attacking instinct had been stifled by Alan Pardew over the past season and how much he preferred the job he was given to do when playing for the national team.

Encouraged to play far further up the pitch by Didier Deschamps, it is little wonder that Debuchy has been outstanding in the group matches so far, as his natural game comes into play.

Little wonder to most fans if arguably Newcastle’s best player last season will now be looking for an ambitious club side to match his style and personal ambitions.

Meanwhile Alan Pardew is lecturing Roy Hodgson on where he is going wrong with tactics and player positions – you could not make it up.
