Newcastle United brought Joselu to St James’ Park last summer, with the Spaniard making the move from Stoke City following a loan spell at Deportivo La Coruna.
The 28-year-old ended the 2017-18 Premier League campaign with four goals, which is not exactly terrific, and many strikers would be criticised for such a low return.
The Newcastle fans have a lot of respect for Joselu, however, with the centre-forward never giving less than 100% when he enters the field.
Sometimes it is not about goals or assists, it is just about showing that you care about the football club, and that has been the case for Joselu this season.
The Spaniard was a second-half substitute in Sunday’s 3-0 win over Chelsea, and he took to Twitter after the match to hail the club’s fans for their support throughout the season.
As expected, the Newcastle fans were out in their numbers to hail Joselu, and a selection of the reaction on social media can be seen below:
