West Bromwich Albion fans have slammed Kieran Gibbs after it was revealed that he will miss this weekend’s match against Burnley through injury.
The Baggies will face the Clarets on Saturday in a match that could have huge consequences in the battle for survival in the Premier League. A win for Sam Allardyce’s men would close the gap to nine points of 17th place Newcastle, giving them a chance of staying up. A defeat, though, would be another nail in their proverbial coffin.
So far this term, Gibbs has been in and out of the team, playing just 10 times in the league (Transfermarkt). Now, it has been revealed he will be unavailable against Burnley due to a shoulder/neck issue.
Should West Brom sell Gibbs?
The update, which was shared by journalist Joseph Masi on Twitter, attracted plenty of attention from the club’s supporters. They took to the social media platform to share their thoughts.
Let’s see what the fans had to say about Gibbs below
“Of course Gibbs is injured”
“Gibbs injured and water is wet”
“Gibbs is more fragile than a poppadom ! #wba”
“When isn’t gibbs out. Get him gone.”
“Unless we only have ten players, Gibbs isn’t going to play for us again.”
“Gibbs got to go. Had enough of him being injured every other month. Need to bring in a left back for next season to challenge Townsend”
