A Newcastle fan trolls Sunderland’s Jozy Altidore & El-Hadji Ba getting them to hold up “SMB” signs [Pictures]

Newcastle fan Kyle Matthews has made the local news headlines after he pranked Sunderland footballers Jozy Altidore and El-Hadji Ba.

Last Sunday, before Sunderland took on Liverpool at the Stadium of Light, Newcastle fan Matthews spotted the American and French footballers walking around the streets of his neighourhood, and his used the opportunity to play a joke on the Wearsiders.

Matthews scribbled “SMB” (Sad Mackem Bastard) onto a piece of paper, and he snapped photos with both Sunderland players holding the sign.

The pictures are now being passed after Newcastle supporters for cheap giggles.
