Former Paris Saint-Germain and Newcastle United midfielder Yohan Cabaye has backed the former to beat the latter during an interview with Le Parisien.
Cabaye has now retired, but he spent stints at both PSG and Newcastle. He featured 93 times for the Tyneside club, scoring 10 goals during his time at St James’ Park. He also featured 57 times for Les Parisiensm scoring 18 goals and registering 14 assists during his time with the club.
He will be in attendance for the return of UEFA Champions League football at St James’ Park, and he praised the club’s Saudi owners for leading Newcastle back into the prestigious competition. “The strategy is considered. There is a desire to breed an English culture, despite the club’s purchase […] they spent €150m during the transfer window, but they spent it well. They do things well and they’ve been rewarded for their work,” Cabaye told Le Parisien.
