Newcastle fans dismayed over Elmohamady link

The Sun reported on Sunday that United boss Steve Bruce wanted to bring fullback Ahmed Elmohamady to St James Park. The newspaper claimed that boss was ready to fight with chiefs in order to be able to sign the 31-year-old from Villa, as the transfer team would prefer to sign someone younger. While normally you would struggle to find Magpies agreeing with the club’s transfer policy, that’s exactly what happened on social media when this report came to light. One fan claimed that Elmohamady was poor at best while another stated that they would rather play Magpies youngster Jamie Sterry rather than the Eqyptian as the player was shocking. Bruce knows Elmohamady very well as he has previously managed him at Sunderland, Hull City and Villa. One Magpies fan even cheekily claimed that Bruce couldn’t work without him. It’s easy to see why many fans below were dismayed as Elmohamady has spent his last two seasons in the Championship, and there’s clearly a reason for that. The right-back scored two goals, while assisting seven, in his 41 league outings last and it’s hard to imagine him racking up similar numbers in a harder division.
