Good Guy Papiss Cisse Invites Newcastle Fans Around For BBQ In His Back Garden (Photos)

By Chris Wright


Once upon a time, having just joined the club, Newcastle striker Papiss Cisse turned up unannounced at the home of a four-year old Toon fan who sent him a “Welcome to Newcastle” card upon his arrival in the North East, and it looks like the Senegalese forward is up to his old “thoroughly decent chap” tricks once again.

Over the weekend, Cisse invited a small gaggle of Newcastle fans around to his gaff in Northumberland for a BBQ in his back garden, though his guests were also given a tour of his house while the younger members of the group also played a bit of pool and FIFA 13 with their No.9 before he surprised them with personalised replica shirts and a kickabout on his lawn.

Cisse told the Chronicle:

“I’ve liked it here from day one. I feel very much at home. I like the area and the supporters and the city. For me now it is all about making them happy.

“For me, [engaging with the fans] is an obligation, a duty if you like. To me, when I pull on the shirt it is for the fans.

“When I first came here I didn’t realise so many kids and so many fans would feel the way they do about me. Now my duty is to make them happy for as long as I can do it.”

Good egg, that Papiss.
