Pardew Gives Newcastle Injury Update On Gouffran, De Jong and Tiote
Alan Pardew has given a Newcastle injury update following the friendly win over Real Sociedad.
The Newcastle manager says it is ‘fingers crossed’ on Yoan Gouffran after he was clattered on Sunday.
Pardew admitted Cheick Tiote has no chance of making next Sunday, while to me he has basically confirmed the same for Siem De Jong.
Speaking to NUFC TV, Alan Pardew had this to say;
“Fingers crossed Gouff’s (Yoan Gouffran) is OK, as coming through unscathed is most important thing.
“They (De Jong and Tiote) are both running at various stages, Siem is a lot further down the path than Cheick.
“They are both massive players for us, to have both fit for Manchester City would be absolutely idyllic, but Cheick for sure isn’t going to make it, an outside chance that Siem will be involved.”
