TalkSPORT pundit Jason Cundy has brutally mocked Newcastle after they won the Championship title – and fans on Twitter have hit back at the former defender.

Cundy congratulated Rafa Benitez’ side on his personal Twitter account for winning their third major trophy since 1965.

He clearly wasn’t impressed with the north east club celebrating or winning the Championship title after Aston Villa scored a late equaliser to stop Brighton from being crowned champions.

The former defender was instantly hit with a barrage of comments, with one fan stating that his boyhood club, Chelsea, would have done a Leeds had Roman Abramovich not brought the club.

The Russian billionaire has had major success during his time at Stamford Bridge from winning a number of Premier League trophies to clinching their first ever Champions League crown in 2012.

Nonetheless, the Newcastle fans got their own back on the pundit by stating that they had never heard of him and mocking his professional career.

Another supporter stated that he was pleased to have won the Championship title and underachieved in the process.

Here is a selection of their messages on Twitter:
