Latest Remy Cabella interview in France
Remy Cabella has given his latest interview in France.
Speaking to L’equipe, the Newcastle midfielder says he understands why he was dropped from the team but that it just made him work harder.
After not scoring or creating a goal in his first two months, Cabella said his ‘pride was pricked’ when he didn’t even get on the pitch against Swansea.
Remy Cabella – pride picked;
“It was logical (getting dropped). The coach started with me for the first two months but I didn’t score a goal or give an assist. Putting me on the bench and even not playing me at all at Swansea, pricked my pride but I didn’t give up, I worked even harder.”
“He (Pardew) put his faith in me in the second half (v Spurs) and it was my first assist and that is good for the confidence.
“He speaks to me a lot and he’s clear. He tells me when I’ll be on the bench…if things are good…if it’s not good. He wants me to help decide games, score goals. For the moment, I haven’t done that. That’s why I’m not playing. Right now, I only think about that – scoring.”
Not under pressure;
“I put myself under no pressure at all. It’s pointless. I’m here to play football, the best job in the world, that is what I like and I love England. It’s like another universe and I’m enjoying it.”
Attacking and defending for 90 minutes;
“It is a new challenge in a new league so of course it takes some time to settle in. The rhythm and intensity surprised me. For 90 minutes you attack, you defend and the referee doesn’t blow a lot. You have to get used to it.”
I like the way Remy Cabella talks and he always comes over well in interviews, saying all the right things.
However, if Newcastle are to do anything this season then it is imperative that Cabella starts to find his feet in England and his form, as the creativity is still missing from the team, despite his assist for Perez’ goal being very welcome.
