Newcastle fans on Twitter discuss Rolando Aarons after he’s left out of Premier League squad

Four or five years ago, Newcastle fans would have you believe that Rolando Aarons was the next superstar to make it big out of St James Park. However, now, he’s been left out of Rafa Benitez Premier League squad for the season and it looks like he’ll be limited to U23 football.

The 22-year-old winger spent the second half of last season out on-loan in the Serie A with Verona and he failed to score a single goal or register a single assist in his few months in Italy. The winger had so much promise when he broke through into the Newcastle first-team set-up and whilst he does have two goals and two assists to his name in the Premier League, it’s hard to see him adding to those anytime soon.

The fans will be disappointed to see him fail to make it anywhere with them, but ultimately it seems his abysmal injury record and off-field distractions have really knocked him off course. It seemed destiny that he’d make it as a Magpie and get some England caps to his name, but after five games for the England U20s  he failed to progress any further. It will be a long road to redemption if Aarons can make it at the club, but the Geordies aren’t counting on it.

The fans are all gutted by Aarons’s absence from the Premier League squad and wish he had made good on his chances he’s had at the club over the years.
