Former Newcastle United star Olivier Bernard hopes fans give Yohan Cabaye a chance to redeem himself.

Bernard believes the double-motivation of winning back their support AND securing his place at next summer's World Cup in Brazil could "bring the best" out of the France international.

"Yohan has all the motivation he needs to get back to his best," Bernard told the Evening Chronicle. "All of this could bring the best out of him, and that can only be good for Newcastle United."
