Remy Cabella the latest player to do interview in France

7 years ago

Just like Moussa Sissoko, Remy Cabella has this week been speaking to the media back home in France.

However, unlike Sissoko’s repeated ‘come and get me’ pleas including in his latest interview, Cabella is more relaxed about his position at Newcastle United.

Talking to Midi Libre, which is the local newspaper in Montpellier, French international Remy Cabella has reflected on his time at St. James’ Park so far.

“I’m enjoying myself and each game is intense from the first until the final minute.

“Arriving from Montpellier I needed time to adapt. I lived through several months which were a little difficult, both on the bench and on the pitch.

No regrets;

“I’m discovering a new league and new players, now I feel much better and I am playing my normal game.

“I do not regret the decision (moving to Newcastle) at all. It was my decision and I take full responsibility for it, which I don’t regret.”

Too easy just to leave;

“When we are put in difficult situation we learn a lot.

“Should I say to myself, ‘Ok, I am leaving now’ because I am not playing or only a little? That is too easy. “

It took 2 or 3 years to feel good;

“At Montpellier I rose steadily and when I became a pro for the first time it was difficult.

“It took me two or three years to feel good and now here, I arrive with other new players, we need  (time)to create something here.”

Regular football needed for Euros 2016;

“In order for me to be at the Euros (hosted by France in 2016) I need to be starting and performing for my club.

“I came here for that reason and to experience something else, when I fill in the gaps  I will be better and I will return to the national team.”
