Elias Sorensen scored a brilliant goal for Carlisle this week, but to say his celebrations were muted would be an understatement – and it’s pretty clear why.
The strike came in a 4-0 win for their RESERVES on Tuesday afternoon, highlighting just how shambolic his loan spell with the League Two side has become following his total lack of opportunities in their first-team.
As the clip shows below, he takes his goal superbly (watch at 2:10), but the NUFC loanee cuts an extremely frustrated and miserable figure just moments after scoring:
The Danish striker may yet benefit from Steven Pressley’s sacking – the manager who wasn’t playing or getting the best out of him at Carlisle – but you have to wonder if it’s time we recalled him.
He was sent to Carlisle to play football at senior level in League Two, not score goals against Morecambe’s reserves. We know he can score at Premier League reserve level, so what use is this to his development?
Carlisle fans will tell you that he’s done little to impress and doesn’t deserve a game in their first team on current form, however he’d be far better served playing for a Premier League side’s U-23’s than coming up against League Two B teams.
Time our ‘loan manager’ Shola Ameobi earned his wage and sorted this mess out.
