Loads of Newcastle United fans have drooled over former player Tino Asprilla’s tweet after he shared a video compilation of his highlights reel during his time at the Tyneside club on his official Twitter page.
However, the caption combined with the footage is what really got lots the Toon faithful drooling, as he exclaimed: ‘What’s up with the takeover!’
Indeed, plenty of Magpies are becoming increasingly frustrated over the takeover situation as a deal is still yet to be completed, and it looks as if Asprilla is another name to add to that list.
The 50-year old enjoyed a fine time in the North East, scoring 18 goals and providing three assists in 60 appearances in all competitions across three seasons, according to Transfermarkt.
The ex-Colombian international’s performances and general mannerisms made him a fan favourite at St. James’ Park, and judging by some of the comments, plenty of NUFC supporters have not forgotten that.
Do you think former players should be commenting on the takeover?
Nevertheless, these fans lauded their ex-striker when they saw his tweet:
I love how these ex players are fans of the club because they understand Newcastle inside out especially from this era – Beresford,Peacock,Howey,Albert,Watson, Barton etc.

The take over will happen one day, and when that day comes it would be a dream to see you and other players from one of the clubs greatest era to return and rebuild us, because you all understand @NUFC and what the club means to our city. Thanks TINO for some great memories

It’s progressing through legals and identifying gaps in the fit and proper tests by the sounds of it. You can only assess against the measures in place not make new ones so get impression no red flag 🚩 and all going through Tino there’s only one Tino 🎧 🎶 #nufc #cans HWTL
