West Bromwich Albion have been reacting to Mislav Orsic’s stunning display for Dinamo Zagreb in the Europa League against Tottenham on Thursday.
Zagreb were 2-0 down against Spurs after the first leg of their round of 16 tie. However, in the return clash, Orsic was in fantastic form as he scored a hat-trick to take his side through 3-2 on aggregate. The Croatian outfit will now play Villarreal in the quarter-finals.
It will have been slightly bitter for West Brom supporters, though. The Baggies were heavily linked to the Croatia international last year while they were in the Championship, with Zagreb said to be looking for £9m at the time to part ways with him (The Express and Star).
With 53 goals in 122 games for Zagreb despite being a winger (Transfermarkt), he clearly knows where the back of the net is, and he has the quality Sam Allardyce and co could do with as they aim to stay in the Premier League. One supporter called it a ‘shambles‘.
Should West Brom have signed Orsic?
The West Brom fans have been reacting to Orsic’s display, and they took to social media platform Twitter to share their thoughts.
Let’s see what the fans had to say about the performance of Orsic below
“Imagine not wanting the spend £9m on Orsic but happy to spend £16m on Karlan Grant…… typical Albion that!”
“Can’t believe we didn’t sign Orsić”
“Perfectly sums Dowling up”
“We have an owner that will not risk any of his own personal fortune to support the club he owns. Sad state of affairs.”
“We signed Diangana instead of Orsic. Krovinovic instead of Yokuslu. Board and Bilic to blame for our shambles of a summer”
“What a decision it was not to sign Orsic am I right?”
