Mohamed Diame left Newcastle United during the summer and is now playing his football in Qatar for Al Ahli Sports Club.
However, that hasn’t stopped the France-born midfielder from thinking and speaking about the Magpies to beIN Sports (via the Chronicle):
Mo Diame: “For me it’s a massive club – outside of the big four, Newcastle for me is the best club in England.” #NUFC

It is clear that Newcastle is a club that has made an impact on Diame and judging by the responses, he became a popular figure during his three years at St. James’ Park.
That comes after he made 103 appearances for the club, scoring eight goals and getting three assists, as well as helping earn promotion from the Championship, as per Transfermarkt.
Some have suggested that he should be brought back to the club, with one claiming he would be a better option than Ki Sung-yueng, who has only played once this season, in the 3-1 loss against Norwich City.
A selection of Twitter reaction to Diame’s comments, including posts from reminiscing Newcastle fans, can be seen below:
