Jonjo Shelvey did not have the best of Saturday afternoons playing against Swansea City this weekend.

Newcastle played out to a 1-1 draw with the Welsh side, with Shelvey proving a huge disappointment in midfield. And after being subbed for Mikel Merino in the 82nd minute of the match, he snubbed Rafa Benitiez's handshake on the touchline, with some even suggesting that he slapped the manager's hand.

Fans were left very unimpressed with the player's performance, as well as his attitude, and expressed their sentiments via Twitter.

Here are some of the reactions below.

Benitez, however, has said that he hasn't taken any issue with the player over his reaction.

“When you are not winning a game like this one, so important, any player has to be disappointed if they do not continue playing," he said.

“But we have to make the substitutions and that is it. I didn’t have any problems with what he did.”
