REMY Cabella has vowed to give everything ON the pitch for John Carver – after angering Newcastle United’s head coach OFF the field.
Carver accused Cabella of being “disrespectful” to his team-mates after throwing down his water bottle following his substitution against Stoke City.
Gabriel Obertan – who came on for Cabella at St James’s Park yesterday – went on to have a hand in Jack Colback’s 75th-minute goal.
But Peter Crouch claimed a point for the visitors with a 90th-minute header.
Carver was disappointed the reaction of midfielder Cabella – who forced an early save from Asmir Begovic with a header from a Moussa Sissoko cross – to his withdrawal.
“You don’t do that – not with this group of people,” said Carver “You have to respect everybody.
“Everybody has to be patient for their chance. If you have to come off and somebody else goes on, don’t be disrespectful to your team-mates.
“The important thing is we are working as a group, not 11 players. It’s a squad of 22 or 23 players. It’s important they know that.”
Cabella says he has “confidence” in Carver, who restored him to the starting XI after taking over from Alan Pardew last month.
“I have confidence with him,” said the 24-year-old. “I give him everything on the pitch. I’m playing, and I want to do the best.
“We’re disappointed. We scored one goal, and they scored to make it 1-1. We prefer to win.”
Cabella and his team-mates are now focused on Wednesday night’s game against Pardew’s Crystal Palace, who are five points behind 11th-placed Newcastle in the Premier League table.
“It’s a big match,” said the France international, an unused substitute for United’s Capital One Cup win at Selhurst Park earlier this season.
“We are going to Crystal Palace to win – we want three points, and we will give everything. Against Alan Pardew, it will be special!”
