Newcastle fans don’t want Mitrovic despite red hot form

Aleksandar Mitrović has been awarded the Championship player of the month award for March, but Newcastle fans are not exactly desperate for his return.

Not too long ago, Newcastle fans were starting to seriously question a major Rafael Benitez decision for the first time since his arrival on Tyneside.

Why on Earth would he loan out Mitrović and bring in an injured Leicester outcast in Islam Slimani?

Mitrović has scored nine times for Fulham since the move, not only prompting those questions of Benitez but also earning him March’s player of the month award.

Despite Slimani failing to make an impact due to a thigh injury, no one is asking those questions anymore, as the Magpies have picked up 13 points in their last six matches.

Benitez clearly does not think the Serbian international can excel under his system and guidance, and fans are starting to agree with the boss, now hoping his successful loan spell simply puts a few more zeros on his price tag.
