Mapou Yanga Mbiwa “happy” to be in France squad

In an interview with our colleagues at RMC, AS Roma central defender Mapou Yanga Mbiwa had the following to say regarding earning a place in the French national squad for upcoming games against Sweden & Albania:

“I am very happy to have been picked. It is always a joy to be part of this list. I am there to complete the group, to give my best and if I can play… I need to fight to give the best of myself.”

He also spoke about his time at Newcastle:

“I got lost at Newcastle… there were too many clouds (he laughs)! Now I am recovering a bit of rhythm, a squad that plays football. Ok, I need to pay attention to my injury, but the right feelings are coming back, little by little.”
