Prospective Chelsea new boy Matt Miazga has been branded dumb, naive and soft by a former team-mate.
The 20-year-old centre-back arrived in the UK yesterday to undergo a medical ahead of a £3.5m transfer to the Blues from MLS side New York Red Bulls.
The Secret Footballer opted to get in touch with some of his contacts for the lowdown on the one-cap USA international.
He heard back from a former team-mate of Miazga’s, who delivered a less than glowing reference.
Miazga is said to be a “nice guy” and a “good kid”, but his ex-colleague isn’t expecting him to trouble Chelsea’s starting lineup any time soon. In fact, he claimed he would need to be sent out on loan to get more experience.
The 6ft 4in defender is also “dumber than the donkey”, naive and “plays young”. He will also need to get stronger and meaner to avoid getting eaten alive in the Premier League, according to the anonymous former team-mate.
