Lewis McCann is a complete confidence player. If he was to believe more in himself and not take criticism so to heart, he’d be twice the player. Over the last few seasons either injury or shit management have knocked him sideways. Without the injuries to others this season, very likely he’d be on the left of a front three and doing very well with other stronger players round him. Stick him up front on his own isolated and he’ll struggle, see majority of the games under Hughes for proof of that.
I feel sorry for him because I suspect (like others) to get the best for him he needs a move. Fresh start. When younger the club should have loaned him out but seemed to hold him back from that. That lack of experience elsewhere has hurt his career in my opinion. There’s a very good player in there.
