Danny Simpson, Newcastle’s right back was knocked unconscious outside of a Manchester takeaway after a brawl.
The brawl kicked off when the player got into a scuffle with a fellow customer queuing for food at the take away. The witnesses say that Simpson hit a man in his late 40s, knocking him to the ground. The player then left before being dragged back and punched. The player lied unconscious on the street for about 15 minutes until an ambulance arrived and took him to hospital.
Thankfully Danny Simpson is now fine and this is what his confidant said “Danny’s fine and will be back training tomorrow.”
Danny Simpson has now only six months remaining on his contract and he has been hoping for a deal that is more lucrative than what has previously been offered. The most likely outcome however, is him leaving the club come July. With Debuchy and Raylor both able to play out on the right side of defence, his days at the club are numbered.
I doubt if we will see Danny in the famous black and white jersey of Newcastle United any more.
