Patrick Kluivert Urges Demba Ba to Stay at Newcastle

Friday, 21st September, 2012

Demba Ba has been urged not to leave Newcastle United by the club’s former striker Patrick Kluivert.

Ba was unhappy at starting the Magpies’ recent Premier League clash against Everton from the bench and his agent has warned that his client could be willing to move away from St. James’ Park.

Newcastle boss Alan Pardew has also confirmed that Ba’s well-publicised release clause of just £7M also applies in the January transfer window, leading to a flurry of speculation over the 27-year-old’s future.

For Kluivert though, who firmly has his toe in the coaching pool, working as coach of FC Twente’s youth team and as Holland boss Louis van Gaal’s assistant, Ba should stay at St. James’ Park.

"Stick with your club and, if you do well for another year, you can look to another club", the Dutchman told the BBC, urging Ba not to make a mid-season switch.

"He did a great job and scored a lot of great goals last year", added the former Newcastle striker.

"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."

And Kluivert feels the pressure may be on for Pardew to launch a charm offensive and convince the Senegal international that he should stay at Newcastle.

"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."
