Newcastle fans make their contrasting feelings regarding Wijnaldum and Sissoko clear


Newcastle United express their thoughts about wantaway duo Georginio Wijnaldum and Moussa Sissoko during the pre-season friendly encounter against Doncaster Rovers.

Ever since Newcastle United’s relegation into the Championship was confirmed, the duo of Georginio Wijnaldum and Moussa Sissoko have been constantly linked with a move away from St. James’ Park.

Wijaldum is currently believed to be on the verge of joining Liverpool for a fee of around £25 million while Sissoko is being courted by the likes of Arsenal, Tottenham Hotspur, Juventus and even Real Madrid.

It seems all but certain that both the players will be leaving St. James’ Park this summer but fans seem divided regarding the prospective departure of the duo.

2,252 fans travelled to the Keepmoat Stadium to witness Newcastle’s 2-2 draw against Doncaster Rovers in a pre-season friendly and during the encounter, the Magpies faithful expressed their hope that Wijnaldum would stay by chanting ‘Gini Wijnaldum, we want you to stay’.

It was the complete opposite in regards to Sissoko though as the fans expressed their desire to see the Frenchman leave by chanting ‘Moussa Sissoko, we want you to go.’
