Swansea fans have been reacting to Friday’s news that Ki Sung-Yueng had agreed to join Newcastle United.
Newcastle supporters didn’t know exactly what to make of the signing, with a wide spread of opinions.
The overall view appearing to be that as a value for money (free!) signing for the squad it is a good move BUT if this is going to be one of the main signings this summer then it could spell troubled times ahead.
However, for Swansea fans, there appears to be pretty much only one overwhelming opinion…
After six seasons on the Swansea books, the supporters think he is lazy and doesn’t put the effort in.
There is a belief that he puts the effort in for his national team but not his club side, although on the positive there are Swansea fans who still acknowledge he has ability.
Whilst there is always going to be bitterness from some fans when a player leaves, these comments are pretty overwhelming in terms of the same view.
Let’s hope Rafa Benitez and the idea of playing for NUFC, can spark the midfielder’s desire.
‘They’re welcome to the F…ing useless lazy wan…’
‘Yep, who cares…hope he does as well as Agent Shelvey.’
‘Ki is a waste of space. My wife could tackle better than him!!’
‘To say “World Cup Star” is a bit of a stretch, Newcastle have only jumped on him as Ashley won’t spend out on decent players.
Two year deal isn’t exactly a sign of huge confidence either.
Benitez won’t take any of his nonsense and if he puts in as much effort for them as he did for us he could be spending the season on the bench.’
‘A player I don’t get….
Puts a shift in for his country hardly any passion for the swans….best rid.
Played for sunderland, they will love him up there.’
‘Possibly the most cowardly excuse for a footballer I’ve had the displeasure of watching.
We had one decent season out of him, the rest a waste of money and time.
***What Swansea fans said back in May 2018 when Ki Sung-Yueng confirmed he was leaving:
‘Said his farewells, there’s one positive.’
‘Happy days then!!’
‘He only works when we’re winning easily and we need better than that.’
‘He passed me by on his way into the Stadium I bid him farewell in the old fashion way, F… Off , it seems to have worked.
On reflection I hope it wasn’t me the tipped the balance in his decision making, oh dear never mind.’
‘If it was, you should get the freedom of the City….!!’
‘This sentence sums him up.
Ki said he was “really frustrated and disappointed” at their relegation to the Championship after five seasons in the top flight with the club.’
‘And that lazy tw.. had nothing to do with our demise…’
‘Makes you laugh tho.
He puts in 3 decent games all season (consecutively around end-Jan – think he may of chipped in with a goal too).’
‘A talented lazy tw.. and that grates even more again.
What a player he could have been for us had he the graft to go with his ability.’
‘Good riddance – never liked him, never saw what everyone else did; awkward, lazy unskilled.’
