Nigeria and Nottingham striker, Taiwo Awoniyi has been criticized for missing a scoring opportunity in the match against Manchester United at the City ground on Sunday.
Former Premier League stars, Andy Cole and David Seaman castigated the forward for not being in clinical in front of the goal.
Awoniyi was presented with a chance to level for Nottingham just before the break.
But the attacker ended up hammering the ball over the crossbar, which Cole and Seaman were not impressed with.
“That was a side foot all day long for me. David de Gea’s left hand, that is where I’m going. He laid it perfectly for him. He [Awoniyi] doesn’t need to go wide of Diogo Dalot because he is in a good position,” Cole told Premier League Productions.
“If you touch him, it is a penalty. So he can actually gamble and take a touch. If he takes a touch and pushes it past him, it is a penalty.
On his part, Seaman said, “I think he should be more composed [Awoniyi missed the chance].
“It just looks like he is putting his foot through the ball rather than guiding it into the side. It was a terrible touch there. It was not fantastic. Just smash it.”
