Pundit Gabby Agbonlahor has ripped into Liverpool centre-back Nathaniel Phillips.
Agbonlahor further added that Phillips would be better suited to the Championship.
“Nat Phillips is not a Premier League centre-half,” Agbonlahor told Football Insider.
“I’ve watched a bit of him now at Liverpool and he’s not good enough.
“For me, he’s a Championship player at best, he’s not good enough for the Premier League, especially at the top end.”
ANFIELD WATCH VERDICT
We don't agree with Agbonlahor's comments regarding Phillips. In fact, we believe that they are ridiculous.
The centre-back averaged a WhoScored player rating of 7.29 across 17 Premier League matches last season.
The aforementioned figures highlight that Phillips is good enough to play in England's top division of football.
Also, a few Premier League clubs reportedly showed interest in Phillips last summer.
If the defender was not up to playing at the highest level, then teams would not have been looking at him.
