I’m not sure on everyone’s opinion on the left back, but to me, he is simply not good enough.
A string of poor performances last season contributed massively to Villa’s downfall, as Cissokho failed to show any of the form he had shown during his time with Valencia in Spain.
Di Matteo will surely be on the lookout for a new left back, or even hoping Jordan Amavi makes a return from injury and can replace Cissokho.
Cissokho for me should be moved on. I question whether he is even good enough for the Championship. At 28, he should be coming into the prime of his career, but for one reason or another, he appears to have just gone backwards.
