Newcastle fans on Twitter far from happy with Rondon blow

Newcastle fans on Twitter far from happy with Rondon blow

Newcastle’s official twitter account is very rarely the bearer of good news and today the tweet that the fans have seen has left them fuming. The Magpies tweeted, with a link to the Newcastle website, that striker Salomon Rondon would miss this weekend’s clash with Leicester City with a thigh injury and the supporters are livid.

The Venezuelan striker was taken off at halftime last weekend during the 0-0 draw at Selhurst Park and now it seems that the thigh problem he suffered was more serious than they thought. Rondon will be absent for the clash at St James Park with Leicester, meaning that the club’s only other out-and-out number nine, Joselu will have to play against Claude Puel’s Foxes.

The fans are already questioning why the club signed Rondon and comparisons are being drawn to Islam Slimani, who was signed on-loan from Leicester last January and failed to score a single goal in his time at the club before being sent back to The King Power Stadium after his abysmal spell on Tyneside. The Geordies will hope that Rondon’s time at the club isn’t quite as bad as Slimani’s but so far he’s made a shocking start.

The Geordies are fuming with the Rondon blow and will be hoping they can still get a result against Leicester by some miracle.
