Newcastle United: These fans don’t trust the club to keep Fabian Schar in January

Newcastle United supporters don’t often trust those in charge of the club at the best of times, as indicated by their fan protests which were reported by The Chronicle.

So when players begin to play well, the concern can develop that they may not be sticking around at St. James’ Park for long.

Fabian Schar has certainly been impressive since joining the club, especially this season, so this thinking has now been applied to the Switzerland international:

The 27-year-old has scored twice and assisted once since 31st August, with the first goal being the equaliser against Watford, followed by a brilliantly worked goal against Republic of Ireland and a pinpoint cross to assist Admir Mehmedi against Gibraltar.

The Switzerland international has played all four of Newcastle’s Premier League games this season, averaging 3.3 tackles, 3.3 interceptions, 3.5 clearances and 1 block per game, as per WhoScored, as well as playing 5.5 long balls per game.

A selection of Twitter reaction to the question, including posts from concerned Newcastle fans, can be seen below:
