In an interview with our colleagues at Foot Mercato, Montpellier President Louis Nicollin took the opportunity to lash out at Newcastle manager Alan Pardew for his adverse treatment of Mapou Yanga Mbiwa.
He had the following to say:
“I don’t have anything to do with this issue. I love him, but he made a grave mistake in going over there. It is not his fault, it is down to his manager and his manager’s way.”
