Tiger Fighting, October 6 News Former Liverpool star Collymore recently published an article in the "Daily Mirror" column. In the article, he said that compared with the previous top defenders in the Premier League, the current defenders cannot Make adjustments in time after the team loses the ball. Collymore also said that Van Dyke is still a world-class star, but even Van Dyke did not respond appropriately after the team lost consecutive goals. Finally, Collymore also said he was disappointed with Maguire.
Collymore mentioned: "I think the defensive art of football is dead. If you want to find the best evidence, it is the miserable defeat of Liverpool and Manchester United on Sunday."
"Especially for Liverpool, I really didn't expect Liverpool to suffer such a tragic defeat. Liverpool had won the Champions League, the Club World Cup and the Premier League before."
"What worries me the most is that Liverpool even lost the desire to win in the game against Aston Villa. Liverpool's defense was penetrated by Aston Villa, and the Villa striker was able to break through Liverpool's defense easily. ."
"When I watched Van Dijk and Joe Gomez's performance against Aston Villa, and watched Maguire and Bayi's performance against Tottenham, I was really disappointed with them."
"Previous top defenders in the Premier League will never make such mistakes. When Ferdinand, Terry, Stam, Steve Bruce, Gary Pallister, Alan Hansen and Mark Lawrenson are at their peak. At that time, they would not let their team lose with such a big score."
"There are also Sol Campbell, Tony Adams, Martin Keon, Steve Bald and Stewart Pins. There were so many top defenders in the Premier League before. And the only goal of these defenders was to help the team. Complete zero seal."
"Of course, I'm not saying that Van Dijk is not a top defender, because we all know that Van Dijk is a world-class star."
"But what bothers me now is that Van Dijk, the Liverpool defender, and the Manchester United defender do not seem to want to take responsibility during the game."
"If it is Hansen and Laurensen, or Parrister and Bruce, they will never give up defense easily in the game. Even after being scored by the opponent, they will find other ways to stop the opponent."
"But the current defender doesn't seem to want to make changes after losing the ball. Both the players and the coach seem to want to wait until the intermission to make changes."
"The coach doesn't seem to want to change his tactics. Even when the tactics don't work, the coaches will think:'This is how we play.'"
"To be honest, I don't want to see such a situation. In 1996, Newcastle led by Kevin Keegan had such a situation. Newcastle surrendered in the championship at the time, and everyone said that at the time. Gang is a naive head coach."
"In my opinion, Liverpool did behave too badly against Aston Villa, they did too bad defensively."
"Whether it's me, Alan Shearer, Andy Cole, Les Ferdinand, Ian Wright, or any of the top forwards of our time, we can do a hat-trick against Liverpool like that. "
“无论是我，艾伦·希勒（Alan Shearer），安迪·科尔（Andy Cole），莱斯·费迪南德（Les Ferdinand），伊恩·赖特（Ian Wright）还是我们这个时代的前锋，我们都可以像这样对利物浦进行帽子戏法。”
"As for Manchester United, I think Maguire did behave too badly. To be honest, he did a poor job defending free kicks. A U11 player knew what to do, but Maguire didn't do it at the time. The right response."
"Maguire was also the starting central defender in England. He gave Kane at least five yards and allowed Sun Xingmin to complete the kick."
"A lot of people are saying that more and more goals are scored in modern football games because the forwards are getting better and better. However, I don't agree with this statement. I think football is about offensive and defensive balance."
"A top team should do well in the frontcourt, midfield and backcourt. If the current defender does not learn how to defend properly, then the art of defense will be lost forever."
