Chelsea Legend and Sport Commentator, Frank Leboeuf has said that the England international is just too clumsy on the field as he hit out at £50m Chelsea star, Raheem Sterling.
However, the sport commentator said he’s not happy with Sterling’s contributions to Chelsea this season.
The Jamaican born who joined Chelsea from Manchester City for a reported £50 million move last summer has endured an underwhelming first season at the Blues, scoring just six Premier League goals.
According to Leboeuf who wrote in a column on Si & Dan Talk Chelsea revealed how he hasn’t been happy with club performance so far.
He said “I never like to be too hard on some players, I want to respect the man first and I want to respect the player.”
“You don’t play for Liverpool, Man City, and Chelsea being an average player.
“But when Raheem Sterling arrived at Chelsea, I said he was not the guy to bring you something else, something extra.
“If Pep Guardiola decided to get rid of him then there must be a reason why. I said £50 million was too much for him.
“But on the field, he is not a leader, he is quite clumsy. Even if I was happy to see him score two goals against Forest, I have to say that I am not happy with his performances overall since he arrived. He loses the ball too much, misses chances, and is just too clumsy.”
