Newcastle loanee Remy Cabella involved in training ground argument over not passing

Remy Cabella is one of the Marseille players feeling the pressure due to their poor form.

Remy Cabella is one of two Newcastle United loanees at Marseille currently experiencing a tough time.

The French side have not won any of their last 12 league games, and saw fans attempt to force their way onto the pitch at the Velodrome on Friday night as they lost 5-2 at home to Rennes.

Cabella has been on loan at the club since the summer, signing as part of the deal which saw Florian Thauvin sign for Newcastle - who rejoined the Ligue 1 side on loan in January.

Former Montpellier man Cabella is one of the players feeling the pressure, with French website Maxifoot reporting he was involved in a training ground bust-up with teammate Lucas Ocampos on Monday.

Maxifoot report Cabella criticised Ocampos for not doing his defensive work, while the Argentine responded by telling the Newcastle loanee he did not pass the ball enough.

Marseille coach Michel is reported to have swiftly smoothed over the argument, dismissing it as a minor disagreement, stating he was keen to see his players care and have passion to improve and challenge each other.

It's just as well from Newcastle's perspective that it was not Toon teammate Thauvin with who Cabella was arguing.
