“Thank You for Everything” – NUFC outcast confirms exit with goodbye message to supporters

Long-serving defender Massaido Haidara has sent a message of thanks to everyone involved at Newcastle United after playing what will be his last game for the club against Chelsea on Sunday.
 
He didn’t start the game, but Benitez showed a touch of class late on, replacing Mo Diame with the French left-back in the final few moments.
 
With his contract up this summer and confirmation recently that we have no plans on handing him a new deal, it was his final appearance in black and white after over 5 years at the club.
 
He signed from Nancy in 2013 with plenty of promise, but injuries and a failure to ever nail down a place in the side have proved costly – and at 25, he really does need to move on to find first-team football elsewhere.
 
Here’s what he’s had to say on his personal Instagram account following Sunday’s game: 

“Thank You for Everything @nufc 🖤⚪”

A nice message from a man who’s always appeared positive and keen to impress despite horrible luck with injuries and a real lack of game time.  A touch of class from Benitez in all of this too, giving him one last appearance at St James’ on Sunday.
 
All the best Massaido!

  1. Wow, was that all? Four words! I mean the club nurtured his talent, supported him through his rehab, tolerated his lack of progress and paid out his very nice wage for five years, for very little return, few games, hardly any goals or assists and, …just four words on departure.
    Olly, why do you try to make a silk purse out of a sow’s ear? Kudos to you for being a nice person, but… The lad had potential, but also a poor mentality and ‘spirit’ that he never turned around, and which meant that one bad injury spooked him into a ‘failure-to-deliver’. NUFC are well rid.
    And, he will probably NOT reinvent himself elsewhere. If he was ever going to do so, he would have done so at NUFC, given all the support and guidance provided to him. It is very unlikely he will get anything even close to that level of support again.
