Newcastle fans want Mitrovic back over Slimani

Newcastle fans are reconsidering the futures of Islam Slimani and Aleksandar Mitrovic, after the Algerian international did a great Mitrovic impression on Saturday.

When Aleksandar Mitrovic was loaned out to Fulham in January, pretty much everyone in Newcastle knew why.

The Serbian striker certainly has talent, but his lack of discipline just could not be trusted, especially with a fight for Premier League survival to come.

Mitrovic showed exactly why that decision was taken in his side’s recent win over Millwall, and fans were certain his Newcastle career was over as he swung an elbow at Millwall’s Tim Cahill.

However, Islam Slimani was brought in as a January replacement for Mitrovic, and the towering Algerian could now miss the rest of the season after kicking out at West Brom’s Craig Dawson.

With Slimani brought in primarily due to the lack of trust in Mitrovic, fans are now leaning towards Mitrovic for who they want up front next season.

Both players now have question marks over their discipline and attitude, but only one of them is scoring goals.
