Remy Cabella has revealed in an interview with French media that he was selected for the team to play Leicester on Thursday and then on Friday he suddenly found out he was no longer in the starting eleven.

The Newcastle midfielder sat on the bench throughout the entire shambolic 90 minutes at the King Power stadium and says that John Carver gave him no explanation as to why he’d been dropped.

Despite this, Cabella says that he gets on well with the Head Coach and that whilst he has found it hard adjusting to the Premier League, he doestn’t regret making the move.

The French international also revealed how Newcastle managed to land him last summer, United being the only club to match Montpellier’s valuation.

Speaking to BeIN Sports

“I made my decision (moving to Newcastle) and I accept it. It is my first season and even though it has been difficult I will not give up. I have had some difficult moments but I’m working hard.

“It has never been easy for me since I arrived here, however I’ve gone through more difficult moments than these before. I have confidence in myself and I know I will come back quickly. I will still be a Newcastle player next season, I am here 100% and I am still under contract.”

John Carver:

“I get on very well with Carver, even though he has not been playing me recently. That is his decision but he has not given me an explanation why yet. On Thursday I was going to start (v Leicester) and then on Friday I wasn’t, he is somebody who talks to me a lot, particularly during training.

“He likes me, we laugh together. The underlying problem is that we’re not winning matches.”

Loulou:

“It was difficult for Loulou (Nicollin – The Montpellier President) to sell me because he was asking a certain price and in France there wasn’t any club who offered what he asked for.

“Newcastle interested me and it was the club that wanted me no matter what the price was, the only club who offered what Loulou was asking for.”

    He didn’t say ‘left in the dark’ that is your usual ‘journalist’ negative spin on everything on this site.

    He was dropped to fit Ryan Taylor in who is undroppable

    Philippines  So c’mon then you and the 3 that liked your comment put some positive spin on things after 8 straight defeats, and 2 wins in 16 games. You have the opportunity the same as everyone else to put your positivity on the way the club is being run.

    We don’t need Daily Mail type headlines do we, people are sick of headlines that are nothing like the reality of the article, he didnt say he was left in the dark, which is blatant lying. We don’t like to be lied to by FCB and co so why should we accept it from the Mag.

    Idiot

    Toon Magpie  I couldn’t  give a stuff  whether you like my attack or not, it’s the negativity towards the Mag. The likes of you and a few others agreed with the poster that EVERYTHING ON THIS SITE IS NEGATIVE of which I  disputed  now I am asking you write something  positive.

    I suggest that being left in the dark is a perfectly reasonable assumption to be taken from Cabella’s quoted words – if he was not told why he was not being played, after being told he was going to.

    It isn’t about positive or negative, It is about lies and truth. Do you like lies or truth that is the question? You clearly put your feet in the lies then Ashley is your man. Fans want truth not a pack of lies.

  • DownUnderMag

    mentalman I was personally loving the prospect of Raylor returning, but not thrust in as a first choice player after so long out.  that was not fair on him to be expected to solve our squad depth problems…  While he has been very ordinary (to be kind) it is expected….and I think the fans who booed him are completely out of order, although totally understandable as he shouldn’t be playing – I think him being booed is more a manifestation of frustration as a whole.

    @sick and tired. It is not a HBA situation. He is still talking. He hasn’t been left in the dark. LIES FROM THE TABLECLOTH.
