Reporter Alasdair Gold criticized Emerson Royal after a poor first half against Rangers. The defender failed to capitalize on his chance, and the team went into halftime down 1-0.
The correspondent expressed his opinion for football.london:
“Defended well on the whole but another half of football in which attacks consistently broke down when he got the ball in advanced positions down the right, including one late chance before the interval. He’s just not a wing-back.”
With the Premier League season about to begin, Antonio Conte will be making decisions, and the Brazilian does not have much time left to convince the Italian manager of his importance to the team.
Apparently, Gold does not see the 23-year-old player in the starting lineup for the upcoming season.
