Newcastle fans rips into Jack Colback for pre-season return

Newcastle United welcomed back Jack Colback alongside a host of players on Thursday for the first day of their pre-season – and some of the club’s supporters on Twitter have ripped into the player.

The Magpies commenced pre-season without a manager following Rafael Benitez’s departure, but have started preparations ahead of the new campaign.

Colback was pictured reporting for training by Shields Gazette journalist Miles Starforth on Twitter, while the club also showed him as part of the group on their Twitter in a video.

The 29-year-old spent last season out on loan in the Championship with Nottingham Forest and was one of their stronger performers.

He is a defensive midfielder that breaks up play and is a touch tackler, but replicating that for in the top-flight has been difficult.

The left-footed midfielder has played 102 senior games for Newcastle, but some supporters have made it clear they don’t want him back for the new season.

A selection of Newcastle fans on social media have ripped Colback to shreds after seeing him involved in training.

It’s unclear on who the next manager will be or what the midfielder’s role will be next season, but it seems a section at St James’ Park don’t want him back in first-team contention.

Here are some of the Newcastle fans commenting on Colback:
