Some Manchester City fans were livid with the performance of Nathan Ake during their 4-3 win over Newcastle United at St. James’ Park on Friday night.
The Citizens’ status as Premier League champions was confirmed following Manchester United’s defeat to Leicester City on Tuesday, meaning Pep Guardiola came into this game with the opportunity to give chances to his fringe players. Some of them, such as hat-trick hero Ferran Torres, took advantage of the opportunity given to them.
Ake, though, was not part of that group. He was named in the staring line-up, but looked shaky at the heart of the back four along with Eric Garcia as City conceded an unexpected three goals. The Netherlands international even gave away the penalty that allowed Joelinton to level things up at 2-2.
Should City sell Ake?
The City supporters were far from happy with that they saw from the £31.5m-valued former Bournemouth man (Transfermarkt), and they took to social media platform to share their thoughts.
Let’s see what the fans had to say about Ake below
“And Ake in my opinion has to leave with Mendy this summer. We don’t need him and he’s not at Dias Stones and Laporte’s level .”
“No agenda, just observations. Ake is so shockingly bad that’s it’s so funny. Mendy is awfully bad and I don’t say anything cause we all know it.”
“Ake had a stinker tonight, unfortunately”
“Ake sounds like he is having a ‘mare tonight”
“This Aké disasterclass man”
“Ake is Wilfred Bony’s defence clone. Sell sell sell”
In other news, Man City fans were worried by these Guardiola comments.
