Haidara expects ‘big name’ Thauvin to have massive Newcastle impact

Massadio Haidara has forecast a bright spell for fellow Frenchman Florian Thauvin at Newcastle United.


The 22-year-old winger joined the Magpies from Marseille earlier this month, making his home debut with an impressive performance in the Capital One Cup win over Northampton Town on Tuesday night, after stepping out in the weekend's 0-0 draw at Manchester United.

Following a positive beginning for his new club, teammate Haidara expects the France U21 international to have a big impact at St James' Park.

"Florian is a big name in France. He is young, but he is a big talent and will be a very good player for us," Haidara told the Newcastle Evening Chronicle.

"It means we have more options for the team going forward. He will help us to win a lot of games this season.

"Now we have to help him to settle down and find his best form. He will be fine if he gets time.

"Game by game he will get better and better."
