Owen Hargreaves insults Chelsea defender Fofana during last night’s defeat against Brentford; Here’s what he said.
Chelsea captain opened the scoring with an own goal and Fofana closed the curtains with a deflection off his feet which resulted in a goal again.
These brought Chelsea to their knees against Brentford and Chelsea cannot do anything about the loss and of course Own Hargreaves was not having it either.
BT Sport pundit Hargreaves strongly criticised the defending from Wesley Fofana during Brentford’s goal.
The 22-year-old centre-back faced up against Mbeumo when he was driving towards the box, but he allowed him to cut inside to his favoured left foot and shot goalwards.
“Mbeumo is a fantastic player, very left-footed; make him go on his right. That is embarrassing to let him come on his left foot and come back inside. Make him go down the line and cross it. Instead, his body shape is all wrong, he’s lazy in his defending, and that goal sums up where Chelsea are at,” Hargreaves told BT Sport 3 (9:50pm, 26 April).
Fofana has been one of the only few positives during a miserable month for Chelsea supporters.
We do agree he could’ve done much better with his 1v1 defending for Mbeumo goal, though.
The French centre-half is still a young defender that will improve with experience and more time, so we are still excited about his future.
Unfortunately, Chelsea still have six more games to play during this 2022/23 season.
