Player Valuation: £70m
It was obvious in the first few weeks after the world Cup that he came back a completely different character. I was saying it at the time.
He had a great tournament and then came back playing a reckless, frenetic game where he took risks, charged out of his box and started diving for the cameras. His basic handling skills became non existent.
The hype and limelight that summer went to his head and he started to act like he'd made it. I genuinely believe he has the ability to be an excellent goalkeeper. I've seen it in the past. But his attitude and mentality are so badly lacking that I dont think he will ever be a reliable top flight goalkeeper again.
Big Nev would sort him out. I am convinced of that. But that won't happen.
I think, like with Tom Davies, he isn't going to be the player we all hoped he would be.
Time for a goalkeeping rethink.
