Newcastle United fans are encouraging Ayoze Perez to leave, after his tweet following Rafael Benitez’s departure.
Newcastle have failed to agree contractual terms with Benitez, much to the disappointment of players and supporters alike.
Perez was the first Newcastle player to react on Twitter to Benitez’s departure, suggesting that he owed the Spaniard a big thank you.
Gracias @rafabenitezweb por estos años, mucha suerte en tus nuevos proyectos! Eres un mister— Ayoze Perez (@AyozePG) June 24, 2019
Thank you Rafa for all these years at Newcastle and good luck in the future! You are a manager pic.twitter.com/pzVQ6voRw7
And even Newcastle fans admit that they cannot blame Perez if he leaves St. James’ Park now.
Leave , escape, be free mate— cheers rafa (@dxvidmetcalfe) June 24, 2019
Get out while you can— Connor Jacques (@connorjacques_) June 24, 2019
Get yourself out the club at the first opportunity lad. Deserve a much better team than us. Place will be toxic now.— Robbie Gowman (@RobGow5) June 24, 2019
You off now as well?— Darren Spottiswood (@taylorhound) June 24, 2019
I wouldnt blame you @AyozePG if you decide to go either. So sick of our owner.— Ross S. (@DreadedScurrvy) June 24, 2019
Ffs. You're next— D Fender (@delfender) June 24, 2019
The striker has also previously refused to commit his future to Newcastle, and Benitez’s departure could well be bad news for the Magpies’ hopes of keeping him.
Newcastle could now face a mass exodus, with the future of many of their first-team players in extreme doubt.
