On loan goalkeeper Matz Sels has spoken out about the lack of game his former team mate Chancel Mbemba is getting at the club.

The Belgian stopper is currently out on loan at Anderlecht for the rest of the season, but that hasn’t stopped him commenting about affairs at his parent club. He told SportFoot (translated by the Chronicle):

“For me, he’s one of the best defenders at Newcastle United. Why does he play so little? I don’t know what’s going on behind the scenes.”

Here is some of the reaction to the comments among fans on Twitter:

Verdict:

The fact is Jamaal Lascelles and Florian Lejeune have struck up an excellent partnership in the middle of the defence over the past seven games. In that time, we have conceded six goals.

Prior to that, Chancel could have had a case for playing more with the Frenchman sidelined, but I trust Rafa’s judgement that Ciaran Clark was the man to be given the chance to partner our captain in defence.
