Newcastle United flop Florian Thauvin posts cryptic tweet with accompanying photo

Florian Thauvin

The Frenchman has not had a good start to his Newcastle United career.

This summer Newcastle United decided to swap their Frenchman who hadn’t worked out for one who has struggled himself at Marseille.

Remy Cabella headed to France whilst Florian Thauvin came in, with a fee of £12 million also going in the other direction – according to The Chronicle.

The attacking midfielder has impressed once, during a League Cup tie with League Two side Northampton Town.

Other than that, it is fair to say he has struggled to find his best form.

Yesterday he posted a rather cryptic tweet, which showcased perhaps his most memorable moment since joining the Magpies:

It seems the tuxedo became something of an induction at the club this season but Thauvin would have been hoping to be known for something a little more tangible than a silly dress up on his first day at St James Park by now.

As for 'started at the bottom' he makes a fair point - Newcastle United have been bottom of the Premier League table this season.

Now they are 17th but after a dire performance v Leicester City last weekend and reports of unrest on the training ground this week Thauvin and co will need to pick things up or risk dropping to the basement again.
