It would be fair to say Chris Sutton is not a fan of Arsenal forward Theo Walcott.
The former England, Blackburn and Chelsea striker was asked by the Daily Mail to analyse England’s attack following the Three Lions’ dismal 0-0 draw with Slovenia. He used it as an opportunity to tear the Gunner apart, in total identifying four things wrong with Walcott’s game.
- He is not clever
- He is not creative
- He has no guile
- His pass appreciation is desperately poor
‘People are saying he is a changed player. He is neither clever nor creative and he was completely ineffective once again for England.
‘The Arsenal man has no guile and didn’t link up at all or put any decent crosses in all night. His pass appreciation is desperately poor and his defensive clearance just after half-time summed his night up. Everyone has credited Gareth Southgate for having the courage to drop Wayne Rooney, but he needs to learn fast and leave Walcott out.
