Yohan Cabaye hits out at lifestyle of Newcastle teammates

Yohan Cabaye has hit out at the partying lifestyle of his Newcastle United teammates.

The former Lille midfielder fears many Premier League players are risking wrecking their careers with non-stop party lifestyles.

Cabaye, 25, told The Sun: "That is something I'd only do at home. Why go out and do something like that in front of everyone?

It's fine to go out once in a while but not every weekend.

"Here in England, if you like to go out and you do not have a stable family around you, then things can soon go off the rails.

"Newcastle treat you as grown-up and let you run your life. Players are policed far less than at French clubs. There is a completely different approach here.

"If you meet other players in the street, or even within the club, you wonder if they really are professionals.

"On the pitch they give their all. They're 100 per cent focused on football and getting the result.

"But once the game is over, irrespective of whether they have played well or not, they are all joking and singing."
