Former French star Willy Sagnol has slammed Nabil Fekir for his professionalism and behaviour.
The playmaker has been trying to force a move away from Lyon and Sagnol condemned his behaviour since Fekir is the man with the armband at the French club.
“They have to take the armband off him and put him on the bench if he doesn’t want to play,” Sagnol told French radio station RMC. “They did the same with [Yoann] Gourcuff.”
Fekir also has blown hot and cold throughout his career, something Sagnol was quick to spot. He also blamed that as the reason why no club ever sincerely approached the talented playmaker.
“He is too inconsistent with his performances and it has cooled the interest in him from big clubs,” he explained.
“They want players who are eight out of ten all the time.
“That is not the case with Fekir.”
Liverpool just won the Champions League last season and have a brilliant front three at the moment. They need more players who can join the team as squad players like Shaqiri and Origi. Whether Fekir fits that bill for Klopp is yet to be seen.
