Newcastle fullback Haidara prepared to meet Wigan's McManaman

Newcastle United defender Massadio Haidara is willing to meet with Wigan Athletic attacker Callum McManaman after their clash last Sunday.

Haidara was carried off during Newcastle’s 2-1 defeat at the DW Stadium on Sunday after McManaman’s knee-high tackle.

He told Le Parisien: "I was told he (McManaman) wanted to speak with me. For the time being, we haven’t talked. There is a language barrier but I think we will try to meet up next week with an interpreter.

"At the time, I was very angry. I thought he’d ended my career. Now, I know I escaped a serious injury, I have taken time to stand back from it and I am not angry."
