Demba Ba urged to stay at Newcastle by Patrick Kluivert

Former Newcastle United striker, Patrick Kluivert has today commented on the Demba Ba dilemma.

His impressive goalscoring contributions  last season had led him to becoming one of the most sought after strikers over the Summer, but after his buy clause expired, it was widely expected that he was happy to stay on at Newcastle.

After the 2-2 draw away at Everton on Monday night, however, the Senegalese front man had expressed his anger at starting on the bench for the Toon army.

“[Ba] did a great job and scored a lot of great goals last year,” added Kluivert.

“It is very easy to say after he had a good year with Newcastle that he wants to leave.

“He’s a great striker and I bet a lot of clubs want him and that’s probably why [his agent] said that.”

Pardew said the club was “vulnerable” after revealing that a £7m buy-out clause is still active in the new year.

Kluivert, assistant coach for FC Twente and the Netherlands, said: “I think [Pardew] knows another big club are after his player so for a manager at Newcastle, it’s not an easy job.

“He has to convince the player that he is a very important for the team and not to say directly that he wants to leave.

“It’s not a good thing for a manager to say that in public.”
