Ayoze Perez sends message to Newcastle fans ahead of Leicester clash

Newcastle United take on Leicester City on Wednesday night in the Carabao Cup second round which will see Ayoze Perez take on his former side – and the Spaniard has sent a message to Toon fans on Twitter.

Perez, 26, clocked up an enormous 195 appearances for Newcastle during the five years he spent on Tyneside – after first moving to Newcastle from Spanish minnows Tenerife in the summer of 2014.

In that time, Perez scored 48 times for Newcastle and laid on another 17 assists. Those stats are even more impressive when considered that he played many of those matches from out wide – and indeed 55 came from the bench.

An excellent 2018-19 campaign saw Leicester pay £30million for his signature in the summer, and he has since made three appearances for Brendan Rodgers’ side. Perez sent a heartfelt Tweet to Newcastle fans, ahead of Wednesday’s game.

Perez is yet to score or lay on an assist for his new side and given that he has started all of Leicester’s Premier League matches, Rodgers may look to alter his side and rest his key players – given the competition.

Newcastle fans have reacted to Perez’s Tweet, which will see the attacker return to St. James’ Park for the first time following his exit from the club – and many are hoping the Spaniard will not score his first goal for Leicester.
