More Feedback From French Fans On Remy Cabella and Newcastle United
Debate continues to rage in France following the sale of Remy Cabella to Newcastle United.
With the exception of PSG who have actively recruited top French players, the rest of Ligue 1 is seeing any number of players moving abroad.
Newcastle obviously sticking out like a sore thumb in terms of the sheer number of players, both good and bad, brought over the Channel.
There is both amusement and anger aimed at the situation with Newcastle United and here are some of the responses French football fans have left on the L’Equipe website following the Remy Cabella sale;
“He deserved a better club but as usual French players go to Newcastle to keep them in the league, there must be some pretty women no doubt over there…”
“In 2 or 3 years he will be resold, minimum for twice the money!”
“As usual the best players leave and we wonder why, why? The French league is mediocre!!”
“Are you having a laugh, 10 million for Cabella, I find this unbelievable and on top of that they are going to add bonuses for an overpriced player. It’s going too far and loulou (That’s Nicollin) wanted 15 million and bonuses. The guy is insane!”
“Newcastle a good club? Since when? With regards to his contract, the price is ridiculous.”
“Newcastle is a very good club and a lot better than many clubs in the French League 1. He will have the opportunity to play against the 2 Manchesters, Arsenal , Liverpool etc…let’s stop this pathetic criticism. He is still very young, the Pl league has the best platform and if he is good he will be spotted by top European clubs.”
“That’s the end of his career…”
“Too small and too weak this player. Just about ok but weak for Ligue 1, he is going to be eaten alive by the ‘giants’ of the PL.”
“Yeah he has settled for 2nd best, likely to go from French hope to ordinary, and more than likely to be forgotten. Look at Cabaye, thankfully he came back to France before it was too late!”
“The PL is not the right championship for him, I think he has made a mistake but I wish him well.”
“Newcastle should play in Ligue 1!!!”
“In France we have stadiums but no players!”
“He has signed for 6 years. He will do like the others, sold for ½ price or triple depending on his progress.”
“He managed to get a 6 year contract. Newcastle is a good club but they have a crap coach so maybe it’s not such a good choice.”
“Shame about a good player leaving Montpellier to go to Newcastle, a miserable club!”
“I can still remember his goal during the final of the Gambardella. Sad to see him go. I nevertheless wish him a good future and hope he is part of the new French team.”
“A southerner in the north of England! He will be back during the January transfer window!”
