Many Wolves fans were not happy with the performance of right-back Ki-Jana Hoever during his side’s 4-1 defeat to Manchester City on Tuesday night.
The Black Country club put up a good fight at the Etihad against the league leaders and were level-pegging with 10 minutes to spare before the floodgates opened.
Hoever came off second best to his opposite number Riyad Mahrez, who made him look foolish on several occasions, although the young defender was often finding himself in situations where he had two Citizens’ attackers to deal with.
Per Sofascore, the 19-year-old lost 10 duels, was dribbled past five times, lost possession 16 times and accumulated a pass success rate of 79%.
Should Ki-Jana Hoever be dropped?
Unsurprisingly, supporters were heavily critical towards the youngster with some suggesting that he should be dropped from Nuno Espirito Santo’s side altogether.
Hoever didn’t impress these fans
“Hoever continues to not be able to pass to a teammate by hitting the Trafford Centre with a cross”
“Someone tell me why Hoever can’t cross a ball and it doesn’t get mentioned enough”
“Hoever is awful”
“Scrappy game from @Wolves. The final scoreline was a bit harsh. Seriously unimpressed with Jana Hoever. Absolutely terrible game from him. Also, Otasowie is cursed it seems.”
“Hoever for £10 million is a ridiculously bad transfer, recruitment team needs looking at. The business done at Wolves over the last 18 months is criminal.”
“Hoever was shocking tonight!! Another waste of multi-millions!!”
