Bafetimbi Gomis: Staying at Lyon

Gomis, who almost signed for Newcastle last month only for the move to collapse over wage demands, will stay with the Ligue 1 club for the whole of this campaign - having buried the hatchet with club chairman Jean-Michel Aulas.

Speaking to L'Equipe after the weekend stalemate with Rennes, Gomis said: "The chairman doesn't do only bad things towards me. He wanted to defend his interest and I defended mine.

"Now the transfer market is over and we have to work hand in hand again. I bear no grudge against him. I won't forget but I am just here to work.

"If I made a decision to stay, that means I respect the hierarchy. I will remain at Lyon until next summer."

xcellent! Not sure if he is any good as a manager (never thought about it) but the 'headbutt in the technical area' and what he said to Pelligrini were just brilliant, it was as if he was trying to recreate the end of the Alan Partridge Xmas special when Alan punched a man in a wheelchair and verbally abused Tony Heirs.
