This season has been split in two for Newcastle United. 2011 saw Demba Ba banging in goals for fun, while 2012 has been dominated by his Senegalese compatriot Papiss Cisse. However, there has been one constant throughout: Yohan Cabaye.
The 26-year-old Frenchman has been absolutely awesome in the middle of the park for Newcastle and has settled into the Premier League with ease. He’s really shown his class and is one of the Magpies’ most influential players.
Alan Pardew must be grateful to be able to pick a player like Cabaye in his starting eleven and chief scout Graham Carr summed it up perfectly when he said that Newcastle got a £10 million player for just £4.5m – a great bit of business.
Cabaye hasn’t done a lot of media work since his move to Tyneside, but when he has he’s spoken with maturity and has come across really well. He seems like a manager’s dream: someone who’ll keep their head down and work their socks off week in, week out.
In a rare interview with Yohan Cabaye for The Far post on Kick TV, the French midfielder speaks about his move to English football, his favourite film, who’s in charge of the music in the Newcastle United dressing room and who spends the longest amount of time in front of the mirror…
Cabaye really takes the mickey out of Jonas Gutierrez, which shows how much banter there is in a very happy Newcastle dressing room. The Dreamboat’s move to the Magpies rally has been a dream.
