Fans of Sunderland have been reacting to a post on Twitter, in which the club relayed footage of a spectacular Chris Maguire strike in a recent U23 fixture.
So far this season, Maguire has been in decent form over his 29 League One appearances for Lee Johnson’s side, with the 32-year-old scoring four goals and providing five assists, as well as averaging a WhoScored match rating of 6.71 – ranking him as the Black Cats’ 16th-best performer in the third tier.
However, having not started a league fixture for Sunderland since the beginning of December, it would appear as if Johnson felt the £315k-rated winger could do with a run out for the club’s U23 side against Burnley U23s on Tuesday, and Maguire did not disappoint, scoring a thunderous drive from the edge of the box in the Premier League 2 fixture.
And, after Sunderland relayed footage of the winger’s goal on Twitter, fans of the club flocked to have their say on the matter, with many questioning why the 32-year-old was involved in the youth fixture, while others simply heaped praise on Maguire for his strike.
Do you think Maguire should be starting for the first team?
So, what exactly did these Sunderland fans have to say in reaction to the footage of Chris Maguire’s goal?
“Should be starting in the first team.”
“Too good to be playing for the U23s. Really hope he gets more first-team opportunities.”
“Needs game time. There aren’t many Sunderland players who can do what Maguire can do – game-changer.”
“Oh my God.”
“Pick that one out.”
“Things you love to see.”
