McLeish Backs Delph To Impress

McLeish Backs Delph To Impress

Alex McLeish has backed injury ravaged Fabian Delph to come back fighting next season after returning to training following his most recent injury.

Speaking to the Official Site McLeish said that Delph had all the qualities necessary to be a top player in the Premier League and he doesn't believe we have seen the best of him yet.

'When I saw Delphy get back in training with the group a few weeks ago it was as sharp and as powerful as I've seen him. We do need to be careful with him, but I think he needs a lucky break. He's had some traumatic years, he came here as a big potential star and the Premier League has not seen the best of him yet.'

To be honest he best thing really seems to be get him back fit and then get him a loan spell for 3 months so he can have some solid game time and get his confidence up. If he's going to make up for lost time he needs to be on the pitch, not stuck on the bench.

Fans seem torn on him, but there is a player in there we just need to get (and keep) him fit and get his confidence up.

Same old PR about 'Delphy'. Bored of hearing about him to be honest. He gives the ball away far too much and he's injured 80% of the time. Scrap heaps a calling!

Seems MON was right about him and his potential to pick up injuries with the way he plays.

If Mcleish rates him he's finished or he'll play him up front,what's more upsetting is Mcleish raring to go for next season.

He does seem to be injured far too often. And when he was in the team at the beginning of the season, he didn't impress me too much. If Idiot rates him, take him wherever you're off to next Idiot!

harsh that Green, I'd much rather he was able to find his form and be part of our team for years go come. His injury was serious and so maybe it has just taken a lot longer to fully get over. Also hard to judge any player judged on this awful season!
