Cisse might miss Swans clash

Published Add your comment

Newcastle striker Papiss Cisse may not be allowed to play against Swansea on Saturday amid a brewing row with Senegal.

The 27-year-old did not meet up with his international team-mates ahead of their friendly clash with Niger after hurting his back during Sunday's 1-0 Barclays Premier League defeat by West Ham.

Manager Alan Pardew revealed the club informed Senegal and sent off details of the player's medical condition, but have since been told they were not received. As a result, the Africans are understood to be threatening to invoke FIFA's five-day rule, which would mean Cisse could not play for the Magpies this weekend.
