The Hartlepool Mail report that Jake Cassidy has branded Hartlepool United a ‘negative club’ and slammed Pools supporters for creating a ‘poisonous’ atmosphere.
The 25-year-old forward rejoined Maidstone United on loan earlier this week, after spending three months at the The Gallagher Stadium earlier in the campaign.
And in an explosive interview with Kent Online, Cassidy has strongly criticised Hartlepool’s fans and claims he was dragged down by the negative atmosphere at the Super 6 Stadium.
“I don’t think they’re good to many people, to be fair,” said Cassidy.
“If it’s not going well it’s a bit poisonous. That’s the stigma around the club. It’s just a negative club.
“A lot of people from the club have come out saying that and I don’t think it’s something that’s going to change, unless they get promoted, which they’re not going to do this year.
“I don’t listen too much to what the fans think but there’s a lot of players who do go under once it turns and it’s a shame for the club because there’s some good players who aren’t fulfilling their potential because they’re getting slated every week.”
