A lot of Newcastle United fans have delivered a harsh verdict on Christian Atsu after Darren Bent spoke to the Football Insider about him.
The former Sunderland man believes that the 27-year-old is going to struggle to get back into the side because both Allan Saint-Maximin and Miguel Almiron are playing so well that they can’t be dropped.
Is Bent a good pundit?
The Ghanaian, who is rated at £5.4m, started the season well with two assists and has featured in ten league matches this season, but he currently can’t find a way into the starting XI and will have to make do with a place on the bench – which is where many Newcastle fans think he belongs.

He doesn’t, he’s a stroller, he’s ok when he’s on the ball but doesn’t work hard enough for me off the ball.

He’s ASM’s backup at LW. ????♂️

These Toon fans think that Atsu should remain as a substitute.
