It has been reported that United’s Gabriel Obertan left St James’s Park an hour before kick-off against Arsenal on Sunday.
Obertan, a substitute in recent weeks, didn’t make the bench for the game, and he decided he didn't want to watch the match.
Obviously the media will jump on the story and the club will play it down, so make of it what you will.
He has yet to win over the Newcastle fans, despite Alan Pardew continuing to boast "he is probably the fastest player in the Premier League".
Fast he maybe, but so was Red Rum.
