Marveaux Forced To Train With The Kids!

He joins the likes of Rob Lee, Kieron Dyer and Marcelino.

Marveaux is understood to have been told to train with Newcastle United’s youth team after a bust up with Alan Pardew.

The French winger appeared for the Magpies as a substitute in last week’s 4-0 defeat against Tottenham Hotspur at St James’ Park, but his lack of effort came into question.

The ex-Rennes star came under fire during Pardew’s post-match debrief along with Hatem Ben Arfa.

It remains to be seen if United comment on Marveaux’s demotion, with the club declining to give a response to the Chronicle yesterday.

Marveaux was eager to leave the Magpies but held crunch talks with Pardew before the transfer window closed.

Until then Marveaux had not featured for United since September’s 2-0 League Cup win over Leeds United.

He was given 19 minutes against Tottenham but again failed to serve up a decent display.

Marveaux has been linked with Spartak Moscow, Nantes and Olympiakos in the last 12 months, but never has it been confirmed with money on the table.

His contract has two years left and Newcastle are desperate to off-load him.

Let's not forget that Pardew said last week: "Every player I have brought in have improved under me!"

Has there EVER been a comment from a Newcastle manager so inappropriate?
