Newcastle midfielder dismisses talk of a division

Yohan Cabaye

Newcastle United midfielder Yohan Cabaye has set the record straight on reports there were tensions in the Toon dressing room between the French players and the English players.

Newcastle last week banned the Daily Telegraph from any club events after they broke the story of inter-club disharmony and boss Alan Pardew claimed he was let down by journalists.

The North East club earned a goalless draw at West Ham on Saturday but with other teams around them winning, relegation is still a real possibility for the club that narrowly missed out on Champions League football last season.

Bitter rivals Sunderland can poor more misery on Pardew and his side tonight as they face Stoke City in a six pointer at the bottom of the table.

Cabaye knows that it is still in their own hands and the dressing room is solely focussed on survival.

“It is only about us now, not Wigan, Norwich City or anybody else,” Cabaye told the Chronicle

“In the dressing room, everything is OK here.

“The French players all want to adapt well. We are all focused together.”

“We wanted to show we are together. We have stayed focused on being safe and playing in the Premier League next season. That is the most important thing.”
