Many Sunderland fans have been reacting to footage of Benji Kimpioka, who is currently on loan at Torquay United in the National League.
The 21-year-old was playing for the Gulls on Sunday against Hartlepool in the play-off final. The match proved to be a tense affair as Hartlepool took the lead early on before Luke Covolan equalised in the fifth minute of added time. Eventually, the north-east club won 5-4 on penalties as they secured their return to the Football League as Torquay missed out.
Kimpioka didn’t start the match but he was brought on from the bench. It was after the clash that he made headlines, but for the wrong reasons, as footage of him emerged throwing a water bottle at a Hartlepool fan during a pitch invasion from the Pools faithful after the match.
Does Kimpioka have a future at Sunderland?
The video was shared on Twitter by @Bsw1995, and it attracted plenty of attention from Sunderland supporters. These took to the social media platform to share their thoughts on Kimpioka’s loss of temper.
Let’s see what these fans had to say about Kimpioka
“Is there anything wrong with this? Don’t see an issue”
“As usual Benji did it very fast but missed.”
“Obviously something been said to him.”
“Silly boy… As if playing for the lads hasn’t grounded him for disappointment!!”
In other news, Sunderland are hopeful of signing this in-demand winger.
