Pardew yesterday revealed that he and Cabaye â€śhad wordsâ€ť during the whole will-he, wonâ€™t-he-leave debacle.
He said: â€śThat was a difficult situation because Iâ€™ve got a great relationship with Yohan.
â€śWhen a player comes in and is trying to force a move, which really and truly he was trying to do â€“ which happens at other clubs, weâ€™re not the only club thatâ€™s happened to â€“ then itâ€™s difficult and we had some words.
â€śI told him my opinion but the most important thing when you get through that process is coming out the other side that youâ€™re still intact. Fortunately, me and Yohan have come through that intact and thatâ€™s important.â€ť
