Newcastle United fans here in the Tavern are feeling extremely relaxed as their side can now look to improve on things over the course of the summer transfer window.
Supporters didn’t have much to shout about this season but Rafa Benitez’s side did manage to ensure Premier League safety. So, today’s result against Antonio Conte’s side had very little impact on their season, as they’ll now look to prepare for the challenges of the next campaign.
However, a number of the club’s underperfoming players may be heading out of the exits after a woeful season, as they may have played at St James’ Park for the final time in their footballing career. Indeed, with Benitez wanting to take the club to the next level in the near future, the last thing he will want is for any dead weight to be present in his side.
Therefore, this Newcastle player should have played his last game for the club today…
Joselu has been arguably one of the worst signings in the club’s history after making the move in the summer transfer window, as he was one of the main reasons behind the club’s relegation worries earlier on in the campaign.
And, the German has completely lost his way in the side during the second half of the season, as the likes of Dwight Gayle and Ayoze Perez have pushed him completely out of the starting lineup.
So, with the Magpies possibly looking to challenge for Europe next season under an ambitious Rafa Benitez, they’ll need to get rid of Joselu as one of the weak links in the first-team squad.
