Yohan Cabaye: Does not expect groin injury to be serious

The Frenchman suffered the damage and was forced off just 37 minutes into the Magpies' 1-0 UEFA Europa League win over Anzhi Makhachkala at St James' Park on Thursday night.

Cabaye, who has made 25 appearances for Newcastle this season, underwent surgery in December on a groin injury which forced him to spend two months on the sidelines.

But the 27-year-old insists his latest problem is less severe and not linked to his earlier injury.

"It is adductor, but not the same place," he told L'Equipe. "I felt some pain.

"We played a lot of matches recently so that could be a reason. Before the encounter against Anzhi, I felt fine.

"I don't think it will be really serious."

o is Jordan Ibe overqualified for this list or what? To be honest I was expecting to see his name, I thought he'd fit in perfectly. Maybe his name is too familiar? Because otherwise this list should be made for him. You could actually just insert his name & stats into the middle paragraph about Brandt and it would describe Ibe.

hat a wonderful compliment - that Wenger has been able to raise more funds for players running a football club than Jose's patron has in running the economy of a small country. I guess it shows there are different kinds of success.
