Ayoze Perez puts pre-match message on Twitter – Interesting replies from Newcastle and Leicester fans

1 year ago

Ayoze Perez has played every minute of Leicester’s season so far.

The former Newcastle player starting all three games, with a win at Sheffield United and two draws, home to Wolves and away at Chelsea.

Wednesday night sees his first return to St James Park since the £30m transfer in the summer.

As with all cup matches, difficult to guess exactly who will be selected.

However, ahead of the fame, Ayoze Perez has posted a message on his Twitter account, saying ‘It will be a special day for me!’

If he does get on the pitch tonight, interesting to see what kind of reception he will get from the Newcastle supporters.

Interesting to see below the reaction Perez got from both Newcastle and Leicester fans to his Twitter posting.
