‘Learn from your mistakes!’ Sam Allardyce blasts ‘disappointing’ player

first_imgSunderland manager Sam Allardyce has warned new signing Jan Kirchhoff he will have to learn quickly after a poor debut in the Black Cats’ 4-1 defeat to Tottenham Hotspur.The ex-Bayern Munich star entered the fray after 59 minutes with the scoreline still at 1-1 and deflected home a Christian Eriksen strike with a lazy attempt at a block and gave away the penalty which led to Spurs’ fourth too.And manager Allardyce admitted Kirchhoff’s display, as he moved to a 3-5-2 in an attempt to win the match, was a huge disappointmentAsked what he would say to the German after the match, he replied: “Learn from your mistakes. You’ve come in at this level and it’s the first time you’re here.“They all think it’s going to be easier than it is – they always have, even when they have as good a pedigree as Jan does.“He’ll need to get to the level and the pace of this game [in the Premier League] as quickly as he can. We hope he can do this and make a contribution.“Today was certainly a disappointment for him and for us with the penalty he gave away.”last_img
