When it comes to selling shirts, Aleksandar Mitrovic is way ahead of the pack.
No other Newcastle player gets close to selling the number of replica shirts that fly out with the Serbian’s name on them.
The club have revealed to the Chronicle their top five selling shirts this season and Mitrovic is proving the most popular by some distance according to NUFC shop sales.
The top five selling players are:
(1) Aleksandar Mitrovic
(2) Dwight Gayle
(3) Matt Ritchie
(4) Jonjo Shelvey
(5) Ayoze Perez
Apart from saying ‘Mitro’ is well ahead of the rest, the club haven’t given any numbers on sales.
However, little surprise to see Mitrovic top of the pile despite having made only four Premier League starts.
The striker clearly has the charisma but has he the ability to go with it…and most importantly, does Rafa see a long-term future/use at the club for him?
No surprise to see the top five all being attacking players, even though Newcastle’s defence has been one of the best in the league.
