Newcastle star backs new signing

Published

on

Demba Ba has backed his new team-mate Papiss Cisse, claiming that he is set to become a success following his match winner against Aston Villa on his debut.

Alan Pardew battled with other clubs to recruit Cisse during the January transfer window, as it was his top priority to bring in a proven goal scorer.

Senegal international, Ba, has become a vital part of the Magpies squad since his move from West Ham in the summer; resulting in Newcastle opting to snap up his international strike partner.
Cisse moved to the Sports Direct Arena from Freiburg, and was keen to team up with his Senegalese colleague.

The pair both returned from Africa Cup of Nations duty on Sunday, and both returned with a bang; with each getting on the scoresheet to secure a 2-1 victory for the Toon.

Cisse bagged the winner, whilst Ba is backing him to continue his impressive star and to settle into the Premier League quickly.

“It was a big day for him and I am very happy for him,” Ba said.

“When you come to a new team it is very hard sometimes to settle in. I think he is a good lad, so he will settle in okay.”

Newcastle were delighted to have their key forward back from international duty, following Ba’s productive start to his Newcastle career.

His goal against Villa was his 15th of the campaign, however he insists that it is more important that the team win rather than him scoring.
“It was not so important (that I scored),” he said.

“I was very happy that we got the win today and it doesn’t matter if I score today or somebody else. I am happy, but it was not the most important thing.”
