Bernard: Newcastle wrong to sell Yanga-Mbiwa

Former Newcastle United midfielder Olivier Bernard says they've gaffed allowing Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa to stay with AS Roma.

United are understood to have agreed a fee for Yanga-Mbiwa but Bernard is urging them to think again.

"Of course, but I would never have let him go," the Durham City owner told the Evening Chronicle.

"We were not strong enough to allow such a good player to go out on loan. We have been struggling at the back all season and we allow such a good player to go out on loan. I don't understand it."
