‘Looked much better’, ‘Excellent performance’ – These Newcastle fans rave over fringe man

Newcastle fans may not have got the result they wanted on Wednesday night as they fell to Leicester City on penalties, but the Magpies did have some positives to take away, one of which was the performance of Yoshinori Muto.

The Japanese international started the game and had enough of an impact, looking bright as the club’s lone forward. He bagged the Geordies’ equaliser in the second half, cancelling out James Maddison first-half opener, and even went on to score in the shootout.

Whilst ultimately Newcastle were knocked out of the competition at the first hurdle, the fans were very pleased with their fringe man, and some are keen to see him given a chance in the Premier League alongside new signing Joelinton.

The Magpies were obviously pleased with Muto and are hoping the Japanese international can play more games moving forward.
