Newcastle United defender DeAndre Yedlin has responded to criticism on Twitter from a Magpies fan.
The 25-year-old posted “classy” on his personal Twitter account about criticism he received from a Newcastle supporter, who stated he hopes he picks up an injury to rule him out for the rest of the season.
But fortunately many Newcastle fans have responded to the social media spat to rally behind the USA international.
Yedlin is a regular in the starting XI under Rafael Benitez and has been at St James’ Park since 2016.
The right-back is a speed machine that loves to bomb forward into attack and is part of a fairly solid backline.
He’s been unable to prevent back-to-back defeats to Crystal Palace and Arsenal in the last two games, which could be a reason behind the recent criticism.
Newcastle are a well structured side defensively that are organised by Benitez and can be stubborn to breakthrough.
Yedlin appears to have the support of a large portion of supporters and he’s turned out to be an extremely useful £5million signing (Chronicle).
Here are some of the Newcastle fans showing support for Yedlin on Twitter:
Wtf, we love you Yedders🖤⚪️

Don’t listen to people like this. Everyone makes mistakes, you’ve played enough games for Newcastle for the fans to know you’re a good player.
