Fans of West Bromwich Albion have been reacting to a post on Twitter, in which the Baggies confirmed that Kieran Gibbs would be leaving the club at the end of the season.
According to a statement on West Brom’s club website, Gibbs will remain at The Hawthorns for the remainder of the Baggies’ Premier League campaign, after which the 31-year-old will leave the club for Major League Soccer side, Inter Miami, on a free transfer.
And, after West Brom relayed the news of Gibbs’ impending departure on Twitter, fans of the Baggies flocked to have their say on the matter, with many appearing delighted at the prospect of the £30,000-per-week left-back leaving their club this summer, due mainly to his injury history.
Do you think Gibbs has been a waste of money for West Brom?
So, what exactly did these West Bromwich Albion fans have to say in reaction to the news regarding Kieran Gibbs?
“I’ll pay for his flight over there.”
“Good, 70k off the wage bill for someone with a hamstring made of glass.”
“Bye then. Rolls Royce in the Championship I saw him once described as. More like clapped out in the prem. 55 grand a week? Nah, not for me.”
“I wouldn’t give him another contract anyway. Never lived up to his name sadly. Good luck to him.”
“Great move for him.”
“Quality most of the time for us, all the best Gibbo.”
