Newcastle United fans react on Twitter to Tim Krul omission

Newcastle United manager Rafael Benitez

Newcastle United goalkeeper Tim Krul has not been taken on Rafael Benitez's side's pre-season tour.

Some Newcastle United fans appear to feel that Rafael Benitez has treated Tim Krul harshly, after leaving the goalkeeper off of the Magpies’ pre-season tour of Ireland.

Krul has not even traveled with the rest of the Newcastle team, as they prepare for the upcoming campaign.

The Dutch stopper is set to leave St. James’ Park this summer, but some Newcastle fans believe he should have been shown some more respect.

Krul has been a good servant to Newcastle over the years, and has previously been a solid option at Premier League level.

The 29-year-old has been with Newcastle since 2006, and has made 185 appearances for the Tynesiders.

Krul was sent out on loan to AZ last term, and there seems to be no way back for him now.

Benitez has decided that he wants a new number one for the upcoming campaign, as Newcastle look to compete back in the Premier League.

The Magpies currently have the likes of Rob Elliot, Karl Darlow and Freddie Woodman competing for a place between the sticks in Benitez’s starting line-up.
