With five years of wages and only 13 Premier League starts and one goal, Sylvain Marveaux was arguably the worst signing of Newcastle United’s tunnel-vision pursuit of ‘bargains’ from Ligue…
“I left France, not under the best conditions, at 25, but I had the chance to sign five years in England (Newcastle).”
French media report that three agents and former Newcastle midfielder Sylvain Marveaux have been arrested as part of HMRC probe.
Emmanuel Riviere got one more year than Sylvain Marveaux and his six year contract isn’t due to end until June 2020.
No club for Gabriel Obertan as yet but fellow Newcastle reject Sylvain Marveaux has found a new home.
One of the most disastrous Graham Carr Newcastle signings (against some pretty stiff opposition…) looks to have eventually found himself a new club.
Newcastle statement on Obertan and Marveaux: ‘Everyone at Newcastle United wishes Gabriel and Sylvain the very best for the future…’
Two disastrous transfers by Newcastle United and sadly they are just two of many under Mike Ashley’s ridiculous transfer policy.
A decent crowd of 2,831 filled one small part of the 60,000 capacity Emirates and within nine minutes the home fans had seen their side go two up.
Gabriel Obertan has started 15 Premier League matches in the last four years and Sylvain Marveaux 13 in the last five years. Neither of them are the answer (if the question is should they be playing for Newcastle?) and never have been.
