‘More bad news’, ‘I have to wake up to this?’ – Many Plymouth fans react as 28-y/o confirms the worst

Plymouth Argyle’s Antoni Sarcevic has confirmed he will be leaving the Pilgrims ahead of their League One campaign next season.

The 28-year-old Player of the Year has told manager Ryan Lowe he will not be accepting the offer of a new contract, and he has said goodbye to fans on his Twitter page, bringing the curtain down on a three-and-a-half-year stay in Devon.

He has been heavily linked with a move to Salford City, which is closer to home for the playmaker. Manchester-born, the midfielder has previously played for Crewe, Fleetwood and Shrewsbury in the north-west, and will seemingly turn down League One football with the Pilgrims, who bounced back at their first attempt, to move closer to home.

Sarcevic, who was Ryan Lowe’s top scorer in the shortened 2019/20 campaign, bagged 11 goals, including five penalties to help them return to the third tier at the first time of asking.

He will be sorely missed by the green half of Devon, with fans taking to social media to wish him well as he plots the next move of his career. It is rare a player turns down a new deal with a club and still gets universal praise from supporters but, unless he suddenly rocks up at Exeter City, he does appear to be leaving Home Park with the best wishes of everyone at the club, as you’ll see below.
