Some Sunderland fans have flocked to a tweet that was recently posted by Black Cats-focused Twitter account @BlackCatsHQ which asks the club’s supporters to share their thoughts on Wahbi Khazri’s time at The Stadium of Light.

Sunderland paid £10.62m to bring Khazri to the club from Bordeaux back in January 2016, however, it may be fair to say that the player struggled to justify his price tag at The Stadium of Light.

Despite playing in attacking positions for the club, Khazri only managed to score three goals and provide two assists in a total of 42 games for the Black Cats before leaving the club on 31 August 2017 to join Rennes for the 2017/18 campaign on a season-long loan. He subsequently departed from the club on a permanent deal to join Saint-Etienne in the summer of 2018

Many of the Sunderland supporters who have been responding to @BlackCatsHQ’s post have been sharing some negative thoughts on Khazri’s time at the club, though some took the opportunity to blame David Moyes, who managed the club from July 2016 until May 2017, for Khazri’s unspectacular tenure at The Stadium of Light. 

Read the negative comments from some Sunderland fans regarding Khazri and his time at the club in the tweets below.

Is it David Moyes' fault that Wahbi Khazri didn't perform better for Sunderland?

NO, IT'S HIS OWN FAULT

NO, IT'S HIS OWN FAULT

YES, IT'S MOYES' FAULT

YES, IT'S MOYES' FAULT

What do we think?

It may be fair to say that Khazri wasn’t a success at Sunderland, as a total of five goal contributions in 42 appearances may not be a good enough return rate for an attacker who cost the club £10.62m.
