'Love our owners' - Newcastle United fans react to co-owner's 'brilliant' tweet in response to Gabby Agbonlahor comments about Kieran Trippier
Newcastle United co-owner Jamie Reuben has hit back at Gabby Agbonlahor’s criticism of Kieran Trippier.
Not one to shy away from voicing his opinion about Newcastle United, Agbonlahor told Football Insider that he believes Trippier was ‘silly’ in travelling to Brentford with the side:
“I don’t understand that, to be honest, I think that’s strange,” the former Aston Villa man said. “People will see that as amazing because he’s supporting the team but I see it as silly.
“You’ve got an injury, you’re on crutches, you should be at home with your feet up to rest the injury not struggling around on such a long trip to Brentford.”
“I don’t see the point in that. If it’s an injury where you are not on crutches and are fine to walk that’s different.
“You’re on crutches, are you doing that for the cameras? Stay home, rest, with your foot up. It doesn’t make sense at all.”
Agbonlahor’s comments have since attracted great attention across the Newcastle United fan base, with even Jamie Reuben taking to Twitter to mock the comments, responding to the comments by tweeting ‘agbonlaBORE !’.
Naturally, this comment from Reuben has invited a great reaction from Newcastle supporters on social media.
