Newcastle United boss Steve Bruce has told BBC Sport that Callum Wilson was not happy with him for taking him off on Sunday.
Newcastle managed to claim a 2-1 victory over Everton at the weekend, with Wilson being sacrificed late on in favour of Andy Carroll.
Bruce wanted to protect Newcastle’s lead, so he took off his side’s main goalscorer in a bid to give his side some more defensive stability.
The Magpies boss went on to say that he’s delighted for the former Bournemouth striker, who now has six goals to his name since joining in the summer, as many as any Newcastle player managed in the league for the whole of last season.
But that seemingly wasn’t enough to appease BBC pundit Garth Crooks, who named Wilson in his team of the week but claimed that his arrival at St James’ Park has been a “slow burner”.
Six goals in seven games doesn’t sound like a slow burner to us, Garth, but we gave up understanding your teams of the week quite some time ago.
