Sunderland slammed Will Grigg after his disappointing performance during the Black Cats’ 0-0 draw with Tranmere Rovers at Prenton Park.
Grigg spent the second half of last season on loan at Milton Keynes Dons, one of his former clubs, and he managed a solid eight goals in 20 matches (Transfermarkt).
With Charlie Wyke leaving Sunderland to make the move to the Latics (wiganathletic.com), £1.08m-valued Grigg (Transfermarkt) could have to play a big role to play for Lee Johnson’s side this coming campaign.
His performance against Tranmere will have done little to convince the boss that he is ready to lead the line throughout the season.
Can Grigg still do a job for Sunderland?
The supporters were far from happy with what they saw from the Northern Ireland international, and they took to social media platform Twitter to share their thoughts.
Let’s see what the fans had to say about Grigg below
“Hopefully Johnson will see that Grigg has no intention of ever trying to perform at Sunderland”
“Grigg and OBrien better be gone”
“Can you tell him to leave Grigg down there please? THE biggest waste of a shirt I’ve ever seen”
“Will Grigg is the worst signing in SAFC history.”
“As much as I’ve been hopeful with his pre-season smiles etc. Will Grigg is not the answer and I fear for safc season if we can’t shift him. Just can’t hit a barn door. There are free players out there more capable if we’re skint and Big Vic in the crowd would be an upgrade.”
“The team is still short with Grigg in man He might as well me non existent, he’s useless. Offloading him frees up wages”
