Aleksandar Mitrovic is already a hero at Al Hilal following his summer arrival from Fulham, where fans have produced a classy — albeit quite niche — banner to celebrate the striker.
But it appears the Serbian frontman may have burned all his bridges with his former club after his latest comments about his move to Saudi Arabia, which Cottagers supporters will not like.
Mitrovic has not taken long to settle in at his new club following his £46million move to Al Hilal.
The 29-year-old has five goals and one assist in four appearances for the Saudi Pro League giants, including one hat-trick.
And it seems the supporters are already in love with their new striker, who has led the line brilliantly throughout the early absence of the club’s landmark signing Neymar — who has only made one appearance since his celebrated move to the Middle East due to injury.
Fans displayed their affection for Mitrovic by displaying a banner in the home end of their most recent game, a 6-1 victory over Al Riyadh in which the former Premier League ace scored a penalty and Neymar got an assist on his debut.
However, while banners for the Brazilian star might feature his seven league titles, Champions League crown or beating Pele's Brazil goalscoring record, Al Hilal supporters were forced to be a little… creative with the content for Mitro’s tifo.
They might have mentioned his two Championship titles with Newcastle and Fulham, his Belgian Pro League win with Anderlecht or Serbian SuperLiga glory with boyhood club Partizan.
But no, instead they hailed his achievement as the top scorer in the UEFA Nations League for the 2022/23 campaign.
What was his record? Six goals in five games, and it was shared with Erling Haaland who also got six goals for Norway.
