Werder Bremen chief critical of "remarkably slow" Silvestre

Werder Bremen sporting director Klaus Allofs has slammed their recently acquired centre-half Mikael Silvestre, suggesting the former Arsenal defender is error prone and too slow.

The veteran Frenchman left the Emirates on a free transfer in the summer after an underwhelming two year spell at Arsenal, to join the aforementioned Bundesliga side, but it appears his employers have been far from impressed with a player than won four Premier League titles with Manchester United between 1999 and 2008.

Speaking about the 33-year-old former Old Trafford stalwart, Allofs told Bild: “The Frenchman has been a disappointment at left back,

"His playing style is remarkably slow and he makes many mistakes."
