Many Sunderland fans were critical of the display of Callum McFadzean despite their 2-0 win over Rochdale in League One on Saturday afternoon.
Dion Sanderson and Charlie Wyke got the only goals of the game in the first half at the Stadium of Light as Lee Johnson’s team aim to push for promotion back to the Championship.
However, while there were some very good performances in the red and white shirt, McFadzean’s flattered to deceive for several SAFC supporters.
Should McFadzean start for Sunderland?
The former Sheffield United man found himself booked very early on in the match for a clumsy foul and, although he did manage to keep a clean sheet, his afternoon did not get that much better.
McFadzean failed to record a single dribble, tackle or accurate cross from left-back, and he also lost possession of the ball no fewer than 17 times, the most out of any of his teammates to have set foot on the pitch (Sofascore).
Sunderland fan reaction to McFadzean display
These Black Cats supporters slammed his performance on Twitter, with one fan even going as far as to claim that the 27-year-old was ‘unbelievably poor’:
“2nd goal came against the run of play. McFadzean continues to be the worst player alive. Think Younger looks uncomfortable at right back, not his fault though. Excellent crosses and headers for the goals. We have to get at them more 2nd half #safc”
“I’m yet to see McFadzean do anything of note, guy gets rinsed up by everyone on the wing. #SAFC”
“Never seen a left-back so bad as McFadzean. Gets caught out so much #safc”
“McFadzean is so bad. Been caught out several times already today #SAFC”
“Younger is a natural centre back and today we had square pegs in round holes again. We’ve got away with it last few games, if we go to Pompey with that back 4 we will lose the game. I would go as far to say McFadzean is the worst player I’ve ever seen in the red and white.”
“McFadzean was unbelievably poor today . Nearly gave away a goal when he went to jump for a ball and it bounced over his head! He really is poor should give Vokins a run”
