”Shouldn’t have ended like this” – Newcastle United fans on Twitter split over recent report

There’s been so much change at Newcastle United over the last few years, though the recent overhaul under Rafa Benitez has largely been a positive one. 

With the Spaniard arriving on Tyneside in their darkest hour, the Geordies propping up the bar have been delighted to see him restore Premier League status to St. James’ Park.

Still, recent reports over his decision towards the Magpies’ longest-serving player have split opinion. Tim Krul has reportedly been told to find a new club as he trains with the youth squad at the club’s Benton HQ.

The Dutch stopper spent last season on loan AZ Alkmaar as he recovered from a long-term injury, though seemingly has no future in the North East. With Karl Darlow, Freddie Woodman and Rob Elliot currently battling it out for a starting berth between the sticks, it seems his 11-year stint on Newcastle’s books is up.

Having played for the club for so long, his likely exit was always likely to spark a reaction. That being said, here’s a look at how Newcastle fans saw it on Twitter.
