Veteran striker Demba Ba revealed his appreciation for former Newcastle United defender Steven Taylor and unsurprisingly loads of Magpies replied to his tweet.
Ba quoted a tweet from the club’s official Twitter account showing footage of Steven Taylor’s mind games against Stoke City and commented “Steven… I miss you crazy.”
The former Senegalese international starred in over 50 games for the Black and Whites, scoring 29 goals and creating 7 assists in all competitions, before departing for Chelsea for a transfer fee of £7.65m (Transfermarkt).
After forming a potent partnership with Papiss Cisse, with the pair scoring 29 goals between them in the 2011/2012 season, Ba achieved a cult-hero status amongst the Tyneside fan base.
The 34-year-old currently plies his trade with Turkish side Istanbul Basaksehir FK, scoring 10 goals and creating 5 assists in 20 appearances in Süper Lig, and the Owls are currently tied with Trabzonspor on 53 points (Transfermarkt).
Plenty of Geordie fans have pleaded with Ba to “come home” to St James’ Park.
