Middlesbrough fans react on Twitter to Kenneth Omeruo performance

The Nigerian international has been poor this season.

Derby County lost to Fulham on Saturday, giving Middlesbrough the chance to take the lead in the race for Premier League title.

Unfortunately, they also fluffed their lines.

Goals from Atde Nuhiu and Will Keane did the trick for Sheffield Wednesday at Hillsborough, as Boro's blip continues.

They have won just once in their last five games, after winning their previous six.

The performance that got most criticism from Boro fans was that of Chelsea loanee Kenneth Omeruo.

The Nigeria international was with the club for half of last season and was fantastic for Aitor Karanka's men. With that in mind, Boro fans were more than happy to see him return to Teesside in the summer.

However, this season has been far less impressive and Saturday was perhaps his worst performance of the campaign yet.

He gave away the penalty and was a liability throughout proceedings in Yorkshire. Then, when subbed off in the 58th minute, he stormed down the tunnel in a huff.

Omeruo once looked like one of the best prospects to make it at Chelsea, after starring for Boro and his Nigerian national team.

Now he looks far from the standard required to make the grade.

Here is some of the best reaction on Twitter to his performance for Middlesbrough...
