Cabaye: No dressing room split at Newcastle

6 May 2013 16:29

Newcastle midfielder Yohan Cabaye has denied reports of a dressing room split at the club.

Alan Pardew's side sit two places above the Premier League relegation zone and have won just one of their last seven top-flight fixtures.

That run of form has led to suggestions of a rift between the club's large French-speaking contingent and the rest of the squad, but Cabaye insists this is not the case.

"In the dressing room, everything is okay here," he told the Chronicle. "The French players all want to adapt well. We are all focused together."

Newcastle eased their relegation fears with a 0-0 draw against West Ham on Saturday, and Cabaye believes his side's performance is proof of the squad's unity.

"We wanted to show we are together," he added.

"We have stayed focused on being safe and playing in the Premier League next season. That is the most important thing.

"We know we are going to play well if we are focused together and stay together. I think we had a good response from last week - but we did not win the game.

"It is going to be very important to get three points (against QPR). It is only about us now, not Wigan, Norwich (who are on the same amount of points and games played as Newcastle) or anybody else."
