Marseille winger Florian Thauvin: Newcastle flop good for me

Olympique Marseille winger Florian Thauvin insists his time with Newcastle United was good for him.

The midfielder endured a difficult six months with the Toon before returning to Marseille on-loan ahead of signing permanently.

He told Canal Football Club: "My failure at Newcastle? It served me.

"I had my first failure at OM then I went to Newcastle. I had a second failure. I told myself that I had no choice. I changed some things in my habits, in the preparation of matches with a physical trainer and a mental trainer.

"After that, you are no longer the same person on the ground."
