Cabaye: I won't leave PSG because of troubles

Yohan Cabaye has insisted that he has no intention of fleeing from Paris Saint-Germain despite his first 12 months being fraught with first-team difficulties.

The France international, 29, has not been incredibly popular with fans at Parc des Princes and has only started one of the club's last 10 Ligue 1 matches, which PSG lost to relegation-troubled Bastia.

As a result, the midfielder had been linked with a swift return to the Premier League, where he had forged a reputation as a top central midfielder with Newcastle United, with Tottenham most recently named as an interested party.

However, Cabaye is determined to make an impression in Laurent Blanc's side and is refusing to entertain the idea of leaving his homeland, instead stressing his desire to stay with the French champions and prove a point.

"I respect my coach and I’m in a great club," he told Telefoot. "Having a negative state of mind serves no purpose. You have to show spirit so you can show what you are capable of.

"I’m not the type of person that flees when they encounter difficulties. I’ve never talked about leaving because I don’t want to leave.

"I’m with great players and I take pleasure from that. I don’t want to leave as a failure. The most important thing is to show a positive demeanour and behaviour."

Cabaye will be hoping to be part of the matchday squad when PSG are back in action in a Coupe de la Ligue semi-final against Lille on Tuesday.
