A Seydou Doumbia outrageous dive amusingly led to a yellow card and a torn tendon, instead of a penalty – watch it here.
Seydou Doumbia has given a new insight into the failed transfer strategy at Newcastle United under Mike Ashley & Graham Carr, which directly led to relegation in May.
Seydou Doumbia will wear the number 88 shirt for Basel, whilst we wait to see whether this summer Rafa Benitez improves Newcastle’s appalling record when it comes to loan deals.
In four days time Seydou Doumbia officially ends his stay at Newcastle but already has his next loan lined up.
Seydou Doumbia: “I can’t blame Rafa Benitez as he makes the choices that he feels are right.”
A bigger mistake for Newcastle United!…Walter Sabatini: “Things are more complicated because Seydou Doumbia made the mistake of going to Newcastle.”
Agent: “Doumbia is a striker who has to be let free, he can’t be tied down by tactical aspects.”
Seydou Doumbia agent asked by media in Italy about rumours that a move has been lined up for the striker to join Leicester in the summer.
This weekend Seydou Doumbia was nowhere to be seen where Newcastle were concerned but turned up on Sunday in Russia…
Strange no journalist asking why a striker with such an outstanding goal record as Seydou Doumbia is being completely ignored…?
