Kevin Mbabu joined Newcastle United in 2013 following a successful trial, and spent four years with the Magpies.

The defender only made five first-team appearances during his time at Newcastle, however, with just three of those coming in the Premier League.

Mbabu spent time on loan at Rangers and Young Boys whilst at Newcastle, before joining the latter on a permanent deal in the summer of 2017.

These days, the 23-year-old is a full Switzerland international, and is representing his club in the group stage of the Champions League.

Indeed, Mbabu was in action against Manchester United on Wednesday night.

The defender could not prevent his team suffering a 3-0 defeat to the Red Devils, but he impressed with his pace and attacking intent in a wide position.

And the Newcastle fans still cannot believe that he was allowed to leave.

Whilst Mbabu is now a Champions League footballer, Newcastle are struggling in the Premier League relegation zone.
