Middlesbrough fans react to Tony Pulis’ scathing comments on Jordan Hugill

Tony Pulis was not mincing his words on 26-year-old Jordan Hugill.

The Boro striker has featured in 12 games in all competitions so far this season, starting in five Championship clashes including the full 90 minutes at the weekend against Stoke.

At the Bet365 Stadium Hugill had chances to score and forced a strong stop from former England goalie Jack Butland, but later left himself embarrassed with his antics in search of free-kicks.

Speaking after the game, Pulis lambasted his forward vowing his ‘nonsense has got to stop’.

The Gazette reported the 60-year-old coach as saying: “I thought Jordan went down far, far too easily a couple of times.

“I don’t want that as a manager. That’s not right.

“We’ve sorted that out after the game. I think he went down twice dramatically. I don’t like all that nonsense. That’s got to stop and he’ll know that now.”

When these Boro fans got wind of the manager’s criticism of the former Preston hitman, they reacted with joy after being witness to his antics on Saturday and previously as well.
