Is Joe Kinnear now ordering Newcastle’s boots?
That’s the word on the street after Newcastle youngster Sammy Ameobi posted a photo of Papiss Cisse’s boots bearing the personalised slogan ‘Sisse’.
Kinnear, Newcastle’s new director of football, made headlines shortly after his appointment by mispronouncing many of the players’ names, most notably ‘Yohan Kebab’.
So this latest balls-up has been jokingly pinned on him too.
Ameobi tweeted the photo above with the caption: “Well that’s awkward…”
And it’s insult to injury for striker Cisse who’s only just returned to full training after being forced to back down in his row over the club’s sponsorship deal with payday loan company Wonga.
