Remy Cabella says he lost his confidence at Newcastle United

Newcastle loanee Remy Cabella has found form at Marseille.

Newcastle United loanee Remy Cabella is winning rave reviews for his recent performances in France after a slow start at Marseille.

The Frenchman moved to the Ligue 1 side on a season long loan as part of a deal which saw Florian Thauvin switch to Newcastle in the summer.

After providing an assist on his Marseille debut, Cabella has taken a while to find his form, but goals in his last two games has fans swooning over his displays.

Speaking to French website Maxifoot, Cabella admits his spell with Newcastle caused him to lose his confidence.

He said: "What means more to me than score, is find the pleasure on the pitch because I lost a little because of last year."

Discussing his return to form, he added: "I had to find myself physically, technically as well. Gradually, it came: I'm having more fun on the field, more assurance and confidence. I feel better and better. I'm trying, it's going well. I hope it will continue because it takes a 100% Cabella, not 50 or 60% capacity."

The report goes on to add that Cabella will be keen to carry on his form so that Marseille want to exercise their option to buy him permanently, and so he can avoid a return to Newcastle.

Based on his displays last season it's hard to imagine Newcastle would want him back, and cutting their losses on the player they spent £12 million on is probably best for all.
