Chris Sutton Backs Neil Lennon Against ‘Bang Average’ Olivier Ntcham

Chris Sutton Backs Neil Lennon Against ‘Bang Average’ Olivier Ntcham

Chris Sutton has backed Neil Lennon against the ‘bang average’ Olivier Ntcham.

The BT Sport pundit weighed in on one of Scottish football’s biggest stories involving his old club and their French midfielder.

Ntcham created the story last week when he spoke to L’Equipe, per The Scottish Sun, about how a move away from the Hoops was best for his career.

Lennon hit back at that yesterday when he described Ntcham’s comments as ‘untimely’, per the BBC, and confirmed that the club will deal with him when he returns for pre-season.

Now Sutton has got involved, backing his former teammate Lennon and criticising Ntcham’s performances last season.

He took to Twitter:

It’s hard to disagree with Sutton considering Ntcham did struggle at times for Celtic last season.

He started just 22 times for Celtic, appearing seven times off the bench too, scoring just four goals and getting one assist.

If Celtic do sell Ntcham then they may need to dip back into the transfer market to find a replacement.
