Pardew: Cisse has Newcastle backing

Friday 28 February 2014

Newcastle United manager Alan Pardew has come out in support of Papiss Cisse, Sky Sports has reported, as the forward continues through a barren spell in front of goal.


Papiss Cisse


Cisse has scored only once in the Premier League this season - a penalty against Stoke City in a 5-1 win on Boxing Day - with two more goals coming in the Capital One Cup and the FA Cup - one each against Leeds United and Cardiff City respectively.


The 28-year-old’s struggles are a far cry from his initial impact in English football - after joining Newcastle from Freiburg in January 2012 Cisse ended the season with 13 goals in 14 games.


He scored another 13 times the following season, in 47 appearances, before the goals dried up almost altogether this year. But Pardew insists he retains faith in the Senegalese striker.


“Papiss isn't the type to blame anyone - he looks to himself,” Pardew said. “He's obviously desperate for a goal, and that could kick-start him.


“This weekend he might have the opportunity to do that. I certainly hope he does. I think he's a good guy, and he's done well for us. We want to get him back playing at his best again.”
