Newcastle United won 6-0 against Bohemians yesterday.
Newcastle United fans appear to be hoping that Florian Thauvin receives another chance at St. James’ Park, after he scored in their pre-season friendly against Bohemians yesterday.
Thauvin looked set to leave Newcastle this summer, after failing to make much of an impact last season.
The French winger spent the back end of last term out on loan at Marseille, and he was widely expected to return to Ligue 1.
However, Rafael Benitez appears prepared to give the wide-man another chance to impress at Newcastle.
And Thauvin has made a good start to pre-season, by scoring in Newcastle’s 6-0 win over Bohemians.
The Magpies were always comfortable in the contest, but Thauvin’s display caught the eye.
@Kia_NUFC Gouffran was doing a job in midfield, Thauvin was decent— Lee Ryder (@lee_ryder) July 17, 2016
Good to see Thauvin bursting a lung trying to get in the box for his goal today. I do hope he comes good for #nufc— LONDONUFC (@londonufc) July 16, 2016
I'd like to see Thauvin given another 'chance'. Impossible for a player to show his real self in a handful of starts #nufc— Rafa's & Army (@NUFC_Fan_) July 16, 2016
Dwight Gayle also got on the scoresheet for Newcastle, on his first appearance for the Tynesiders.
Gayle looked bright throughout the fixture, and earned widespread acclaim on social media site Twitter.
Gayle is ready to run riot this season. https://t.co/hvtaIA0IQB— Bryan Garcia (@BryanUF) July 16, 2016
