Newcastle star deletes Twitter account after fan abuse from Villa game

4 years ago

Some blame him for the last minute equaliser that cost United two points against an awful Aston Villa team.

The latest in a series of questionable displays by the Newcastle United number one.

Many people have not held back in tweeting their views towards him, which has resulted in him having enough and removing himself from social media.

So Newcastle keeper Matz Selz has deleted his Twitter account, seemingly due to the amount of criticism from Newcastle fans after the Aston Villa game.

I have got to say the criticism he has received has been way too harsh and over the top.

Of all the players to blame for the dropped two points last night, Matz Sels shouldn’t be at the top of everyone’s list.

Dwight Gayle and Mo Diame were the two biggest reason why we failed to win at Villa park, throwing away some of the best chances we will make all season.

Gayle, through one on one, lacked any composure to recognise how much time he had to do whatever he wanted and fired straight at the Villa keeper. Diame somehow missed from 6 yards with the entire goal in front of him. Shocking the pair of them.

I hope Matz Sels’ confidence hasn’t been totally destroyed by fans on Twitter and elsewhere, as at the end of the day, we need him. Whether Darlow should be first choice or not, Sels is a new player and shouldn’t be made to feel like he can’t look at his Twitter account anymore.

Lots of fans have already tweeted how sorry they are for criticising him but the damage is already done…he won’t see any apologies now.
