Stephen Warnock Gives His Frustrating Verdict on Ian Poveda


Stephen Warnock told on the Match of the Day that Ian Poveda, the Leeds United star had been outstanding for loan side Blackpool but he explains why Leeds feels frustrated with the pocket-sized winger.

Ian Poveda was the star of the shoe from the side of Michael Appleton as Blackpool produced one of the outcomes of the third round of the FA Cup. A giant killing, defeating a Premier League side but even better, considering their form.

The last men of Appleton won a Championship game. However, they smashed Forest. Poveda got a goal with incredible footwork and then helped with assists as Blackpool raced ahead of the opponents of the Premier League.

Warnock, the ex-Leeds defender gave some analysis on Match of the Day after the stunning win of Blackpool. He says that Poveda is the type of player that will have frustrated Leeds. However, he showered praise on Poveda for his outing.

Warnock says that he is one of the players that Leeds has found to be frustrating at times. However, one thing that he did was his positivity. He made sure that every time he picked up the ball, he attacked the back four of Forest.

He said that his footwork for the goal and his calmness is outstanding. The pace at which he attacks, hungry to win the ball back, and the weight of the pass. He is the kind of player who can frustrate you in one game and the next- everything can go right.

Warnock feels that Poveda is outstanding for Blackpool- loan side. According to him, Poveda has shown great performance but it is also a nail on the head from Stephen Warnock. As Poveda was brought to the club by Leeds, big things had been expected but he has never been able to transform potential into proven quality.
