Sunderland midfielder Yann M’Vila is looking forward to next week’s derby clash with Newcastle to relive his happiest club memory.
The 25-year-old is on a season-long loan at the Stadium of Light from Russian side Rubin Kazan and there are reports that he could be down for a full-time move in the summer.
M’Vila says he is loving life with the Black Cats and is looking forward to next week’s derby after he played a crucial role in the win at the Stadium of Light last October.
When asked what his best memory was, MÂ’Vila told the club’s website: Â“The whole match against Newcastle United.
Â“The fans were amazing, but theyÂ’re always amazing, whether we win or not. They give us a special motivation and I think that gives us motivation on the pitch.
Â“When I play I think of my family, I think of my children, and I think of the fans as well.
Â“It doesnÂ’t matter where we play the fans are there, and for the supporters itÂ’s part of their lives.Â”
