Joselu and Diame need to work on their attitude under Benitez

Joselu and Diame need to work on their attitude under Benitez

Newcastle United will be desperate to enjoy a positive run of games after a hugely disappointing start to proceedings.

The Magpies could find themselves adrift at the bottom of the table if things don’t start to change, with the teams above them starting to pick up points.

Indeed, a couple of players at the club just haven’t shown the correct attitude so far this season, which won’t have pleased many supporters. Of course, with the Magpies focused on climbing up the Premier League table, a bad attitude is the last thing that the club needs to be dealing with.

So, with things getting tough, Newcastle United fans will be fuming with the attitude of these TWO players…

Mohamed Diame

Mohamed Diame has been criticised for his performances in the black and white stripes this season as he continues to disappoint due to a lack of consistency. Indeed, the central midfielder is normally energetic and constantly harasses the opposition, but he has lacked determination and has no end product.

Therefore, the Senegal international needs to start showing signs of improvement in his performances, otherwise he could be on his way out in January.


Joselu has gone on to become one of the worst signings in the club’s history but Rafa Benitez has been forced into gifting him minutes off the substitutes’ bench recently due to Salomon Rondon’s injury.

However, the Spaniard is very lazy at the pinnacle of the attack and often drops his head when things aren’t going his way, which is a huge reason behind why he has been such a failure at St James’ Park.
