Martin Braithwaite joined Middlesbrough from Toulouse in 2017, and scored six times in 21 appearances for the English club during the first half of the 2017-18 season before switching to Bordeaux on loan.
The 27-time Denmark international is believed to have come close to leaving Boro during the recent summer transfer window, but stayed at the Riverside Stadium.
The attacker has managed three Championship goals this term, but his form has been quite mixed.
It would be fair to say that the 5ft 11in ace splits opinion with the Boro fans, and that was once again on display on social media.

Indeed, Braithwaite responded to a supporter on Instagram questioning his commitment to the club, and that was later posted on Twitter.
There are Boro fans who feel that the 27-year-old has shown that he cares about the club this season, but that is not a view shared by everyone.

Hes sacrificing his own game for the team aswell, he seems to be playing abit deeper on the left aswell when early on in tge season he was supporting the lone striker much better.

He’s one of the only players we have with half a footballing brain .. he’s probably fed up of playing alongside the likes of Clayton/Howson/Friend who are so basic, yet people seem to love them

Braithwaite can certainly talk the talk but he should know that his actions speak more fluently than his words. Im yet to be convinced.

Braithwaite is not good enough plain and simple, have seen enough to realise that.

You are a wonderful footballer and a true gentleman. Ask my four grandsons about the exceptional way you treated them. We all love what you do on the pitch and off it. We can see every time you play how you give your all. Thank you.
