DeAndre Yedlin took it upon himself to give the Toon fans something to cheer about during an otherwise drab encounter against German club Augsburg in their final pre-season friendly.
The American absolutely tore through the pitch in a lung-busting 8-second sprint from one box to another and made quite an impression on supporters with videos of his run going viral on social media following the 1-0 loss.
And now it seems the clips have found their way to the defender’s Twitter feed as well with Yedlin responding to a fan’s post by commenting how he was completely out of gas for the rest of the game after the run.
Fans on Twitter seemed to love the passion on display by Yedlin and will be hoping that some of his intensity brushes off on his teammates when they meet his former employers Tottenham in their Premier League opener five days from now.
