Papiss Cisse spotted gambling at casino

Papiss CisseSenegalese striker Papiss Cisse refuses to wear the Newcastle shirt as the new sponsor is a money lending company. The islam prohibits gambling, while muslims are not allowed to benefit from lending money or receiving money from someone.


In October last year, Newcastle United agreed a new four-year deal with Wonga. Cisse has declared that he will not wear the shirt as the money lending company is contrary to islam. That seems rather hypocritical as Cisse has previously been spotted playing blackjack at a casino.

Modest stakes

Newcastle United fan Andrew McNally posted a picture on Twitter which allegedly shows Cisse at a gambling table. McNally claims that the Senegalese striker talked about the next matches of ‘the Magpies’. The muslim footballer wagered modest amounts, up to £20. Cisse has been spotted gambling by other supporters as well, McNally added.
