Cisse could miss Swansea game due to FIFA rules

Papiss Cisse could miss Newcastle’s game with Swansea this weekend after Senegal were upset that the player did not join them for international duty.

Cisse failed to report for their game with Niger, although his club sent medical information to the Senegalese detailing a back problem the player had.

If Senegal wanted, they could invoke the five day rule which says that a player withdrawing from international duty without good reason cannot play for his club during that period.
