Newcastle Sign The ‘New David Ginola’

6 years ago

Newcastle defender Paul Dummett has compared new signing Remy Cabella favourably with past United hero David Ginola.

The first four months at St.James’ Park, David Ginola was simply unplayable and for many fans who had the pleasure of seeing him play, one of the most exciting wingers they’d ever seen.

If Cabella can live up that billing then he will be a firm favourite of the fans.

However, Kevin Keegan always accepted that you couldn’t get the best out of Ginola if he was expected to always track back.

What Alan Pardew’s orders will be to Cabella, remains to be seen.

This is what Paul Dummett had to say to the Northern Echo;

“I loved David Ginola when he was here and I suppose there are similarities between the two of them.

“Ginola was probably more direct but Cabella has a box of tricks like him, anyone who has seen him pre-season will have seen that.

“He’s tricky, sees a pass, and I am sure he will create a lot of goals for us.

“He is going to have the fans on the edge of their seats, giving us something that we probably lacked towards the end of last season.”
