VIDEO: Jamie Carragher destroys lazy Sunderland defender on Monday Night FootballPublished November 1, 2016
Jamie Carragher was in a relentless mood on Monday Night Football as he analysed Sunderland’s latest Premier League defeat to Arsenal. The Black Cats, without a win after ten games, went down 4-1 to the Gunners on Saturday. Ex-Liverpool defender Carragher picked out one man in particular who should hang his head in shame: Lamine Kone.
One of Sunderland’s best players last season, Kone looks like a completely different player now. The French centre-half didn’t seem remotely interested in their scrap against the Gunners, as Carragher highlighted in his review of the weekend.
The clips that Carragher picks out are damning. Kone is completely out of sync with his teammates. He’s wandering out of position and doesn’t bother communicating with his teammates. He’s extraordinarily lazy and will hide in preference to getting stuck in.
For a defender of his quality, it’s a damn shame.
