No Regrets From Toon Defender

Mathieu Debuchy says he has no regrets about joining Newcastle United - despite being plunged into a relegation battle.

Mathieu Debuchy: “I have really enjoyed the first four, five or whatever months I’ve had here.

“It’s gone really well. The Premier League is a very difficult league to play in, but by the same token it’s an interesting one as well.

“Why is the league difficult? Every match is difficult, and I do mean every one.

“You have some of the best players in the world, so the level in all games is of a really high standard.

“But that is a challenge that I wanted when I decided to join Newcastle.

“We did OK against Arsenal, and it’s just a pity we conceded the goal when we did.

“We want to do a lot better.

“There is a determination within the squad to improve next season.

“It’s not been good enough for a team such as Newcastle United to do what he did in the last campaign, and everyone knows that. We will do better next time.”
