Newcastle United manager Rafa Benitez came in for some stick from a section of the fanbase following his decision to loan striker Aleksandar Mitrovic out to Fulham last season. The Serbian found the back of the net regularly as they won promotion back to the Premier League via the Play-Offs, and we cashed in on the 24-year-old to the tune of £22million according to some reports.

Especially in light of Newcastle’s struggles in front of the net this season, Mitrovic started the 2018/19 campaign brightly, scoring five goals in his opening six games, but since the clash with Watford towards the end of September, his remaining games have seen him hit a drought of his own.

With Fulham losing again on Monday evening to Huddersfield Town, plenty of Newcastle fans were happy to lay into our former player, believing that Rafa had been vindicated in his decision.

He was clearly poor and fans have seen those types of performances a few times during his spell with us but they’ll be plenty hoping this small piece of gloating doesn’t come back to bite us.
