Marveaux Doesn't Fear French Atmosphere

Sylvain Marveaux says the atmosphere in Bordeaux is nothing like the passion at St James' Park.

Sylvain Marveaux: “I think it will be a tough game.

“They want to be first in the group like us.

“We’ll prepare well for this game. It’s tough because we have a lot of injuries. We have to prepare for this game, and the one at Fulham.

“It will be hard, but we can win.

“We know we’ve qualified, and if we can get the first place it will be better for us.

“It’s important to be first in this group. If you’re second, you can play against a team from the Champions League.

“They have good players – I know a couple of them very well.

“For me, it will be a pleasure to go back to France with Newcastle and play a French team.

“I’m glad I can go to France and play against one or two of my friends.

“The atmosphere isn’t the same as it is in England, so it won’t be a difficult atmosphere for us.

“But they have good players, and I think it’s a hard game.

“They lost against us 3-0, so maybe they would like to get revenge.”
