With rumours suggesting Antoine Sibierski could be in line for a sneaky return to SJP tomorrow, the Wigan striker with Norwich notched on his belt, spoke fondly about his season at SJP. Having been a popular choice with the fans due to his hardworking ethic and well timed goals, he said:

‘I wanted to know when Wigan played at St James’s Park, and when I found out I would miss the game, I was very disappointed. If there was one game I didn’t want to miss, it was this one. I had a great year up there, maybe the best in my career. I just tried to be honest, and to be a man. If Newcastle fans see you are not lazy and trying your best, they will support you.

It’s sad to see where they are now, because I’m still a big Newcastle fan. Every weekend I hope they win, and I look for their result. If they lose, I’m disappointed. When I retire, I’m going to go with my son to see Newcastle play, as they’re the team I support.’

They have got some very good players, and they play very well collectively. They are not on a good run, but they are capable of going to St James’s Park and playing very well.

I’m playing every game and enjoying it, and that wasn’t the case at Wigan. When Glenn Roeder called and asked if I wanted to come to Norwich, I said ‘why not?’. I’m playing for a good club in the Championship in front of 25,000 people.’
