Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa loves playing with Newcastle United hero Steven Taylor.
The France defender feels Taylor is "crazy".
Yanga-Mbiwa said: âSteven is a funny guy and he is a great footballer.
âHe is someone who literally puts his body on the line.
âSeeing that for real on the pitch, like that header from the floor, it gives you a massive example.â
Asked if he felt Taylor was crazy, Yanga-Mbiwa grinned: âA little â especially when he teases the keeper. But it is a great experience for defenders to keep attackers of the quality of Samuel Etoâo quiet.â
