Lots of Newcastle United fans have criticised Ayoze Perez after a story was posted about him by the Leicester Mercury.

After he was bought by Brendan Rodgers’ side for £30m in the summer, Leicester have gone onto have a fantastic season, currently sitting third in the Premier League.

Nevertheless, based on the story which has a range of fans’ opinions on the player, he hasn’t seemed to win over the King Power Stadium just yet.

The article asks supporters to give a rating out of 10 for his performances thus far, and out of the 10 people that were asked, there was no score higher than seven and no score lower than four – so it’s clear nobody thinks he’s been a great addition.

Would you sign Valentino Lazaro for £21.5m?

Nope, we can do better

Yes, would be a great deal

Many referenced the fact that he has been playing out of position for much of the season, with him being better suited behind the striker rather than on the wing.

Two also described the player as “lazy”, prompting the popular Newcastle fan account @NUFC360 to tweet about it, claiming that he wasn’t lazy and was always one of the hardest workers under Benitez.

Despite this, many got in response to the account and disagreed with him, with some saying that he was lazy, and others just saying that he isn’t very good.

Here are some of the responses below…
