Newcastle United and Senegal striker Demba Ba is unhappy at the way his club is handling him.
The lanky striker has been used as a bit part player by the club and even during the 2-2 draw with Everton on Monday 17 September 2012 where he scored twice, he came on as a half-time substitute.
His agent Alex Gontran says that the player is puzzled by the decision to always leave him out of the playing unit.
- Demba is happy at Newcastle. He is playing in the Premier League, with lot of fellow French speakers and he loves the club's supporters, Gontran told BBC Sport.
- Since returning from the Africa Cup of Nations, Demba doesn't understand the management, said Alex Gontran.
- If he continues to be a substitute all season, we'll look at other solutions, he said.
Ba has already scored thrice for the club in the Premier League this season.
