Interviewed by Ligue 1 Magazine, French 26-year old attacking midfielder Remy Cabella, playing for Olympique Marseille since 2015/16, after a quite disappointing Premier League experience at Newcastle during the previous season, admitted not being cut out for English football:
“It was a move that I’d always been keen to make. I have no regrets, even if there were some low points. I learned from the experience. I was always attracted to England - the big clubs, the style of football - but now that I’m back in France, and more experienced, I think that Spain could be better for me, maybe my style of play is more suited to the Spanish league.
English football is not easy, it’s not for everyone. I’d say you need some time to adapt. Every team is strong and that’s what makes the league so tough. Some players are cut out for it, others aren’t. Franck [caretaking manager Passi, Reporter's Note] is very close to us players and we have to applaud his efforts because Marseille is far from an easy club to coach, especially in the current climate, it’s very tough. I think he is doing his job well; he’s trying to find solutions.
I think we can improve and we will do everything to make sure we do. The most important thing is that the players and the staff be at ease. After all we are the ones on the pitch, and the only ones who can truly lift the club".
