Cool Cisse felt no pressure

Published Add your comment

Newcastle new boy Papiss Cisse insisted he felt no pressure when he was thrown straight into the heat of Barclays Premier League battle.

The 26-year-old arrived on Tyneside in a near £10million switch from German side Freiburg last month, but had to wait until Sunday's clash with Aston Villa to make his debut after joining club-mate Demba Ba in the Senegal squad at the African Nations Cup.

And Cisse established himself as an instant hero after coming off the bench to claim the winner with a stunning 71st-minute strike. Asked if he had felt the expectation on his shoulders, he said: "No, not really, not real pressure."
