“I’d have him as club captain” – These Newcastle fans full of praise for international defender

A lot of Newcastle United fans are delighted with the performances of Federico Fernandez but are unsure of who is the best centre-back at the club.

The Argentine got his first Newcastle goal on Saturday with a looping header over West Ham keeper Roberto – who was stranded.

This made it a goal, and one assist from Fernandez’s two starts this season, and he has turned out to be an absolute bargain at £6m.

This season he has an average rating of 6.82 has won 1.6 tackles per game and 1.4 aerial duels per game.

The performance of Fernandez, though, sparked a debate on who Newcastle’s best defender is, with some fans thinking that it is Florian Lejeune or Fabian Schar.
