Papiss Cisse has had a quiet start to the season in front of goal and now it will be that little bit quieter in the bedroom as well, as he has split up with his girlfriend and former Miss Newcastle Rachelle Graham.
Cisse can’t seem to find his mojo right now and he has decided to split with his beauty queen girlfriend off the pitch in an attempt to re-find his form on the pitch.
It is thought that Cisse wanted to ‘concentrate on his football’ and has made arguably the ultimate sacrifice in order to that.
Ms Graham, 22, is said to be ‘heartbroken’ but officially said: “It is nobody’s business. I would rather not talk about it,” while Cisse’s agent stated that it’s a ‘private matter’.
Rachelle is best known for winning the Miss Newcastle competition in 2012 and going on to finish in the top 15 of the 2013 Miss England competition.
An owner of a coffee shop in Ponteland, Graham had worked hard with Cisse to raise money for an ambulance in Senegal earlier this year.
While it won’t make Cisse particularly happy, let’s hope that it will be that change he needs to find the goal scoring trail.
