Who will the Toon play in the next round of the Carabao Cup after they beat Newport County on penalties?

With time running out, the ball was fired into the box, and the former Toon man pulled off an incredible scorpion kick that flew into the far corner of the net.

After the game, Lazaro tweeted about the goal and the game and claimed that he was happy with the goal – but was disappointed that his side took nothing from the game.

This post from the Austria international drew the attention of many Newcastle fans who had their say on Lazaro’s goal.

So, what did these Newcastle fans think of Lazaro’s post?

Do you miss Lazaro?

Yes, he could have been a good player for us

The 24-year-old spent the second half of the 2019/20 season on loan with Newcastle and made 15 appearances, scoring two goals in all competitions.

In the Premier League, he made four starts as well as nine substitute appearances, and found himself playing at right-back on five occasions.

This post from Lazaro continued to draw in Newcastle fans, who feel that Steve Bruce ruined him.

The Toon had an option to buy in Lazaro’s contract but chose not to take it up, and instead, he joined Monchengladbach on loan for the season, where he perhaps showed what Newcastle are missing with this stunning goal.

It is clear that many Toon fans blame Bruce for what happened with Lazaro, and none of them hold anything against the 24-year-old.
