Circumstances dictate Cabaye must lead by example at Newcastle

Stand-in Newcastle skipper Yohan Cabaye says his limited English means he must lead by example rather than shouting orders. The 27-year-old Frenchman scored the equaliser with a superb free-kick is the 2-1 success over Stoke on Sunday.

"The manager trusted me and the club trusted me, and I want to give them back this confidence on the pitch," he said.

"For me, it's a new role. My English is not very good to speak in the dressing room, I just want to lead the team on the pitch and I hope I am doing well."
