Newcastle fans react on Twitter to Georginio Wijnaldum’s home debut

St James Park

Georginio Wijnaldum featured for Newcastle United against Borussia Monchengladbach in a pre-season friendly on Saturday.

Newcastle United fans have taken to social networking site Twitter to give their reaction to Georginio Wijnaldum making his home debut on Saturday.

The Netherlands international midfielder played his first game for the Magpies at St. James’ Park against Borussia Monchengladbach.

Although Steve McClaren’s side lost the pre-season friendly game 1-0, the performance of Wijnaldum was encouraging.

The 24-year-old moved to the Magpies from Dutch giants PSV last month and is expected to be a major player for the team during the 2015-16 campaign.

The former Feyenoord star played a key role in PSV’s Eredivisie title triumph last season, scoring 14 goals and creating 41 chances in 33 league matches.

Wijnaldum had a pass accuracy of 84% and a shot accuracy of 54%, and won 17 headers, 63 dribbles and 26 tackles.

Following the Dutchman’s home debut on Saturday, Newcastle fans took to Twtter to have their say.
