Many Birmingham City fans have taken to Twitter to respond to the news that Tahith Chong has returned to Manchester United after suffering a groin injury.
The exciting Dutch attacking midfielder had previously been in fine form for the Blues this season and undoubtedly gave his team the spark and creativity they needed most in the early stages of the campaign.
Chong is now set to be out for 16 weeks as he continues his recovery, with both clubs agreeing he would be better off watching his period on the sidelines back with the Red Devils in Manchester.
Of course, it did not take long before the news filtered through to Birmingham City loyalists, with many taking to social media to air their views on the announcement.

😳😭hopefully he will be seen again in a blues shirt after his return. I can not believe we have lost him at such a crucial time of the season, he performed so well and misses all these victories we have picked up. Quick recovery Chongy🙏⚡️💙
