Sunderland: Podcaster buzzing over Edouard Michut goal for under-21s

Sunderland: Podcaster buzzing over Edouard Michut goal for under-21s - Championship News

Sunderland podcaster Philip West was left buzzing over the news that Edouard Michut scored for the Black Cats’ under-21s in their 3-2 win at Stoke City on Sunday.

The Lowdown: Building up sharpness

After just 37 minutes of senior football for the Stadium of Light outfit so far this season, Michut still needs to build up his match sharpness following his loan move from PSG in the summer.

A number of other first-team players were also involved for the under-21s against Stoke, including Abdoullah Ba, Leon Dajaku, Jewison Bennette, Jay Matete and Niall Huggins.

Nonetheless, Michut managed to get himself on the scoresheet, in what was a stellar overall performance.

The Latest: West buzzing

Taking to Twitter, West was left buzzing after Michut got himself on the scoresheet, claiming that it was ‘great to see’ and adding that it should give the attacking midfielder some ‘confidence’.

He tweeted: “Great to see Edouard Michut getting on the scoresheet for the Under-21’s today. He’s very physically slight and clearly still developing, but I don’t think he’s destined to fail at Sunderland. The goal should’ve given him some confidence.”

The Verdict: Needs more minutes

After impressing at under-21 level, there is no doubt that Michut now needs more minutes in the first team under Tony Mowbray.

There was a lot of hype when he first signed from such a big-name club in Paris Saint-Germain, as he had already made eight first-team appearances for the Ligue 1 giants by the tender age of 19.

Nonetheless, fellow attacking midfielder Alex Pritchard has played in every game in the Championship so far this season, so the 29-year-old could do with some rotation, giving Michut more matches to impress for the Black Cats.
