'Send him back to Liverpool!' Stoke fans slam Assaidi's performance on Twitter

The Liverpool loanee's performance against Wrexham displeased a lot of Stoke fans - despite him being awarded the man-of-the-match award!

Some Stoke City supporters have called for Oussama Assaidi to return to Liverpool on Twitter after their side's 3-1 FA Cup win over Wrexham.

Liverpool loanee Assaidi was voted man of the match by sponsors as Stoke came back from behind to beat Wrexham on Sunday afternoon.

But many supporters were left bewildered by that choice - which seemed to represent a wider trend of dissatisfaction with a poor performance from the Potters.

"At 1-0, I thought we were going out to be perfectly honest. We didn't play anything like we should have done and credit to Wrexham, they were excellent," Stoke boss Mark Hughes told BBC Sport after the Cup tie.

"In the end we got away wit it. We made changes at the end to try to get some craft into our play and thankfully Stephen Ireland took the game away from them."

Assaidi's display did please some fans, with the on-loan Liverpool winger commended by a few for his willingness to get at Wrexham.

Most Stoke supporters were far from impressed, though, with several taking to social media with their wish that the 26-year-old be returned to Liverpool this January. Some were joking - some weren't. Their displeasure with his ability to beat a man seemed pretty genuine all round, however...
