Newcastle boss Pardew: I've explained No9 significance to Cisse

Newcastle United boss Alan Pardew is happy to hand the coveted No9 shirt to Papiss Demba Cisse.

His new manager, however, admits the player might not yet understand just what that means.

He said: "I have tried to explain that to the player, but I don't think he is going to understand it until he arrives."
