Newcastle fans all agree dumping Mbabu was a mistake

Newcastle fans are once again bashing their transfer policy, after former player Kevin Mbabu was linked to Manchester United.

The arrival of Rafael Benitez at Newcastle has completely changed the club’s fortunes, but some recent transfer links have once again highlighted just how poor some of the club’s business has been in recent years.

Of course, the number one scapegoat on Tyneside when things go wrong is Mike Ashley and the Newcastle board, and it’s not surprising given some of the transfer decisions the Magpies have made.

Benitez has done a fantastic job with limited resources this season, but fans are still ruing missed opportunities, as Kevin Mbabu seems to have flourished since leaving St. James’ Park.

The Swiss defender joined the Magpies back in 2013, but made just three league appearances before being shipped off on loan, and eventually sold permanently to Swiss side Young Boys.

A recent report has linked the 23 year-old with a move to Old Trafford, and fans can’t believe they were so quick to dump the youngster, who is expected to feature for Switzerland at the World Cup.
