Former Liverpool man Jamie Redknapp has told Chelsea legend Ashley Cole to concentrate on his job by especially seeing to the growth of young defender Lewis Hall.
Chelsea legend Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink had slammed the youngster for ‘very bad defending’ in their 4-1 defeat to Manchester United on Thursday.
The youngster at one point failed to track down Manchester United’s Jadon Sancho
as the winger ran into the box, leading to one of the goals.
And Hasselbaink was critical of the 18-year-old full-back. And for this reason, Redknapp feels someone like legendary Cole, who is one of Frank Lampard’s assistants, and one of the best full-backs ever, should do his job by training Hall to become a better player.
Hall was Chelsea’s brightest player during last Sunday’s defeat at Manchester City and was a threat early on going forward at Old Trafford, teeing up Mkyhailo Mudryk for what should have been the game’s opening goal.
“From Lewis Hall’s point of view, I’ve watched the last two games live, he was their best player I thought against Man City, again today going forward I thought he did ever so well,”, he told Sky Sports.
“The training is not quite right, the intensity isn’t right. It is important you do your job. Now he has got one of the best left backs we’ve ever seen in Ashley Cole on the staff there.
“He needs to work on that, look at his defensive positioning, make sure he gets his body shape right because that can’t happen. He has got to make sure he gets those defensive details right because if not it’s going to be costly for him.”
