Deschamps Knocks Newcastle
France coach Didier Deschamps says Yohan Cabaye is getting rave reviews because of his displays on the international stage - and not with Newcastle.
Didier Deschamps: "Cabaye didn't change his status because he joined Newcastle, it is because he has been called into the French team and he has matched expectation.
"One of my favourite sayings is: 'National team is above everything, you can play at the greatest clubs, but there is nothing stronger than winning with the shirt of your country'.
"I can give you an example - Yohan Cabaye. He didn't change his status because he joined Newcastle, it is because he has been called into the French team and he has matched expectation.
"Nowadays no-one could imagine the French team without him. But why?
"You really believe people look very closely at his performances with Newcastle?
"No, he got his status with Les Bleus, thanks to his good work for the French team."
