Sunderland fans have been reacting after Chris Maguire scored for the club’s U23 side against Burnley on Monday.
The Black Cats hosted the Clarets in the Premier League 2. The score ended up being 3-0 to the home side, and Maguire was on the scoresheet. The victory now means the Wearside outfit are up to ninth in the Group 2 table with 24 points from 18 matches (flashscore.com).
To see Maguire playing at this level may seem unusual. After all, he is 32 years of age and has appeared 29 times in League One already this term, scoring four times and providing five assists (Transfermarkt). However, he has not started a match in the third tier since December 12th of last year, against Wigan, and he is therefore clearly in need of some match practice as we approach the end of the campaign.
Should Maguire start for the senior side?
The news of his goal was shared on Sunderland’s official Twitter account, and the fans took to the social media platform to share their thoughts.
Let’s see what the fans had to say about Maguire below
“Imagine my shock”
“The king has spoken”
“THE KING IS BACK”
“Fantastic Chris but please save one for an important league game!”
“Baffles me why he’s even playing in this game. He should be in the first team.”
