Cabaye: They slated me for choosing Newcastle!

Yohan Cabaye is delighted to have proved the doubters wrong over his move to Newcastle United.

The former Lille midfielder joined Newcastle last summer.

Cabaye told the Evening Chronicle: "When I left Lille to come and play for Newcastle, people in France and the local journalists said 'why have you left Lille to play for a team which finished 12th in the league?'

"But I can't be happier with my decision.

"Look where we are and what we can add to what we've already achieved so far.

"Now those same people who talked so negatively are saying that I made a good choice!

"But I always knew I was coming to a big club with fantastic supporters."
