Pic: Newcastle’s official Twitter throwing shades at Renato Sanches with this Mikel Merino tweet?

Following his summer arrival on loan at Newcastle United from Borussia Dortmund, young Spanish midfielder Mikel Merino has been winning hearts with a string of impressive performances.

The 21-year-old put in yet another impressive display as Newcastle came away with a hard fought 1-0 victory over Swansea City at the Liberty Stadium.

While his impressive performance may have been overshadowed with everyone being more interested in the abysmal debut for Bayern Munich loanee Renato Sanches, Newcastle United made sure to acknowledge Merino’s recent performances with a dedicated tweet from the club’s official Twitter handle.

The tweet while praising Merino as a great addition to the Premier League also appeared to take a slight dig at Renato Sanches who flopped on what was a very anticipated debut for the Portuguese international.
