‘Easily worth it’, ‘Still a liability’ – These Charlton fans are torn over player future as he nears end of contract

Published

on

Charlton Athletic defender Naby Sarr is out-of-contract in the summer.

Sarr, 26, split opinion at The Valley when he first arrived in 2015. He came from Sporting Lisbon and had fans excited for who they thought might be the next best centre-back in the Football League, but his earlier appearances were abject.

Today though, Sarr is a massive player for Charlton and a favourite amongst fans having helped them to promotion last year, and putting in some commanding performances this time round.

He’s played 21 times in the Championship this season having been rotated a fair bit by Lee Bowyer, and he also has three goals to his name.

Sarr scored in back-to-back games against Hull City and QPR towards the end of last year, both of them being Charlton’s second of the game, in two 2-2 draws.

Who is this Charlton flop?

We asked Charlton fans of the Facebook group ‘Charlton Athletic FC (The unofficial & uncensored Charlton fans group’ whether they think Sarr has earned a renewal at the club, and here’s what they had to say:

Ian Lane: Yes, I feel more at ease with him in defence, just look at Tuesday night’s result.

Iain Barket: He’s on a huge salary isn’t he? Unless he takes a big pay cut I think he’ll be on his way.

Richard Manklow: Easily worth it. Has cost us points before but earns us just as many. Gives us something to talk about each week, and he’s not made of glass like half of our glass!

Ben Swaden: One good game and he’s the best defender in the league, still a liability but if he improves until the end of the season why not.

James Croucher: He’s shown what he could do, now he needs to show he can level up to this league, if he proves he can then give him one more year.

Nicky Windham: He was unreal the other night but he hasn’t played like that enough unfortunately. Think if we want to progress we have to move on from players like him, Pearce and a few others.

Jason Bradley: Before Tuesday everybody would’ve said now. I’ve always backed him as he’s the best defender at our club, definitely give him a new deal.
