Sebastien Bassong admits that he is expecting to be booed by the Newcastle fans when Spurs visit St James’ Park this weekend.
Bassong spent a season at Newcastle, but joined Tottenham when the Toon were relegated to the Championship.
â€œI know Iâ€™ll be booed again, but hopefully not too much,â€ said Bassong. â€œI was booed against Newcastle in the game at White Hart Lane, but can I expect anything else?
â€œWhen you only play for a club for one year, and then you leave I thatâ€™s part of football.
â€œI will never forget what Newcastle United gave me. They gave me my chance to play in the Premier League, and despite the boos, I still wonâ€™t forget that.
â€œI appreciate what they did.â€
â€œNewcastle are a tough team â€“ they have some hard players to play against, like Andy Carroll,â€ Bassong added.
â€œTheyâ€™re going to stay up, for sure. Theyâ€™ve proved in a lot of games that they have the right amount of skill and ability.
â€œIt will be hard for us. Newcastle also have a new manager in Alan Pardew, and theyâ€™re looking well organised.â€
