Newcastle United fans on Twitter have been reacting to the latest images of Toon defender Federico Fernandez.

This comes after the official Newcastle Twitter account shared a post that contained three images of the defender in a recent training session with the Tyneside club.

Starting with an easy one, what number does Wilson wear for Newcastle?

This post then gathered a lot of replies from Newcastle fans who were quick to share their responses.

So, what did these Newcastle fans have to say about this post?

Newcastle signed the Argentine back in the 2018 summer transfer window from Championship club Swansea City for a fee of £6.03 million.

Since then, the defender has gone on to make 68 appearances for Steve Bruce’s side, in which he has managed to score two goals and provide three assists along the way (per Transfermarkt).

Is Fernandez Newcastle's best defender?





Now that the official Newcastle Twitter account has shared this post onto their page, this paved the way for lots of Toon fans to share their responses. While it was clear that supporters were delighted to see the defender nearing a return to action, there was some concern shown for Allan Saint-Maximin, who has been nursing an injury of his own of late.

Looking at the replies to this post from the official Newcastle Twitter account, it’s clear to see that this group of Newcastle fans are over the moon at seeing Fernandez back in training. This shows that they have a lot of love and respect for the 31-year-old and that they see him as an important member of their squad.

Given that Fernandez has made more blocks per game (1.7) this season than any other Newcastle player, it comes as no surprise that these Toon fans feel this way about the defender.
