Newcastle striker Cisse ready to quit Senegal captaincy

Newcastle United striker Papiss Cisse admits he's considering his international future after Senegal banned him from playing in the defeat to Swansea City.

The Toon are still fuming over the affair, with Cisse in his kit and ready to play before club officials finally backed down at 1.40pm.

Cisse said: "I am fully supportive of the position my club has adopted in this matter and am sorry that the Federation seem to doubt my honesty and integrity.

"I will now consider if I wish to continue to captain my country."
