Aluko’s Performance For Reading In 2017/18 Season Rated Poor

Aluko’s Performance For Reading In 2017/18 Season Rated Poor

By James Agberebi:

Nigeria forward Sone Aluko’s overall performace for Reading in the just concluded English Championship season has been rated lowly by a Reading-based news medium, Completesportsnigeria.com reports.

The ratings which was done by a popular local weekly newspaper, Reading Chronicle, was an assessment of how Reading key players performed in the course of the season with each player scored out of 10.

And according to Reading Chronicle, Aluko, 29, rated four.

Commenting on Aluko’s performance, the publication wrote: “A shadow of the player who played against Reading for Fulham last season.

“Too many games seemed to pass him by. One stand-out moment with his solo goal against QPR and a good performance away at Derby County, but Aluko hasn’t justified his club-record price tag.”

Aluko joined Reading in August 2017 from Fulham and made 39 league appearances scoring just three goals.

Reading escaped relegation to League One as they ended the season 20th on 44 points, three points above the drop zone in the 24-team final league table.

  • The highlights of Aluko’s Super Eagles career to date were those 2 well taken goals against South Africa on the 19th of November 2014 in Uyo which were too little too late in Nigeria’s efforts to qualify for the subsequent African Cup nations.

    Ahmed Musa missed some sitters early in that same match!

    Will Aluko get a chance to feature for the Super Eagles in future (after the 2018 world cup in Russia)?

    You have to say his chances are slim considering the brilliant talents (Iheanacho, Awoniyi, Isaac Success, Sadiq Umar etc) coming through.

    Nonetheless, thanks for your contributions to Nigerian football thus far, Aluko.
