Former Coach Slams Newcastle Star – Is This Unfair?

As reported by the Chronicle, one of DeAndre Yedlin’s former coaches has claimed that he feels that Yedlin must “improve”, if he is to be a success in England.

Former Seattle Sounders coach, Sigi Schmid was asked about Yedlin and he said:  “Consistency is a key and the manager does not feel 100-per-cent confident with him yet,”

“He has improved some of his deficiencies but needs to continue to grow those areas.

“His defending needed to improve and he needed to push through some adversity to prepare for the adversity he would face in England.

“His final passing and decisions with the ball need to improve too.”

He also feels that Yedlin should have spent more time developing his game before moving to England, adding: “The move was probably too early, he needed to grow his game a bit more and mature,”

“If he comes back now he will probably not go back [to Europe].

“As a right-back, it would be hard to find an MLS team willing to pay the salary he might need.

“He would want to be a Designated Player. That might be difficult.

“Otherwise, it is a huge cut in pay.”
