Morrison says Trincao needs to offer more end product

Wolves lost 1-0 at home for the second straight game, going down to Arsenal last night thanks to a goal from defender Gabriel.

Bruno Lage’s side had strong periods in the game but struggled to make it count as they failed to immediately recover from their FA Cup exit.

Clinton Morrison was among the pundits covering the game for BBC Radio 5Live and at 8.39pm during the game, he said he wants to see more from wideman Francisco Trincao.

“Wolves started very well but Arsenal grew into it,” he said.

“Jose Sa made a rare mistake and Gabriel scores like a striker. It was a fascinating first half.

“Wolves were still in the match but I’d like to see a bit more from Francisco Trincao on the right. He needs an end product.”

Morrison’s criticism of Trincao is a familiar one throughout the season. He does not have a Premier League goal or assist to his name this term.

As per WhoScored, Trincao did not have a shot at goal at all or make a key pass in the game against the Gunners last night.

He had just 36 touches before being replaced just past the hour mark.

Reports from Spain suggest that Trincao is set to be part of a swap deal with Adama Traore which would see both wingers stay with their loan clubs.

Traore also had an issue with end product, so it is up to Lage to solve the conundrum.
