Newcastle fans still reeling from Kevin Mbabu exit

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.

The Swiss was outstanding for Young Boys last term, and was actually linked with a return to Newcastle during the recent summer transfer window.

Mbabu ultimately remained at his Swiss club, however, and helped them reach the group stage of the 2018-19 Champions League with victory over Dinamo Zagreb on Tuesday night.

The Newcastle fans have been reacting to the news on social media, and it would be fair to say that a number are still upset that their club allowed the 6ft ace to leave.
