'Waste of a shirt', 'Been missing' - Newcastle fans destroy first team star v Liverpool

By Russell Edge

Newcastle United fans have taken to social media to tear into the performance of Ayoze Perez in Sunday’s clash against Liverpool.

The Spanish attacking midfielder was named in boss Rafael Benitez’s starting XI to make his seventh start of the season in what resulted in a 1-1 draw between the sides.

Perez has started all of the club’s Premier League matches this campaign, but has had a limited impact on the pitch.

He has picked up just one assist and is yet to find the net in his outings so far, and he failed to impress the Newcastle fans at St James’ Park in their match against Liverpool.

The Toon Army turned to Twitter to voice their frustrations with the 24-year-old, with many questioning what he brought to the side.

Here, Football Insider has rounded up a selection of the supporters’ best tweets:


Perez has been with the Magpies since arriving from Spanish side Tenerife back in the summer of 2014, and despite initially being signed for the reserve side was thrown into the first team as a result of an injury crisis.

He has demonstrated his versatility, having been used as a striker, attacking midfielder and a winger on both flanks.

He has scored 25 goals in his 125 appearances for the club, 13 of those coming in the Premier League.
