Liverpool midfielder Jonjo Shelvey slammed fans who criticised his performace in home defeat.
Young Liverpool midfielder Jonjo Shelvey has taken to twitter to hit back at those fans who criticised his performance on Monday.
Shelvey, 20, started in place of the injured Daniel Sturridge in Liverpool’s disappointing 2-0 home reverse to West Brom in the Premier League and launched a staunch defence of his performance through the social media site.
The former Charlton midfielder tweeted: ‘Love people giving me stick… when half of the people on here haven’t got a clue what they’re on about.’ He also branded his critics ‘keyboard warriors’.
Brendan Rodgers hauled him off just after the hour mark to be replaced by Italian Fabio Borini, and the Londoner could well be getting a visit from his new neighbour Steven Gerrard after his tirade at the Red’s fans.
Team-mate Daniel Agger took to twitter for a more amicable reasons, issuing an apology to the Anfield faithful following his performance in the defeat.
The Dane tweeted: ‘I agree with most of you, My performance in the last 10 minutes was NOT good enough. It’s as simple as that!!!!!’
Gareth McAuley shook off the defender to head home, before he was beaten by Romelu Lukaku for the Baggies’ second.
