Wolves manager Paul Lambert has criticised Cameron Borthwick-Jackson for his lack of fitness, claiming he’s falling short in his battle for a place on loan at Molineux.
Lambert took over at the Midlands club last November and Borthwick-Jackson hasn’t even played a minute during the Scotsman’s time in charge.
He joined the club on a year long loan at the start of the season, but has been back playing for the Under 23s to pick up game time, recently playing against Sunderland on Monday night.
Speaking about the situation, Lambert claims Borthwick-Jackson needs to be working harder.
“I think Cameron is falling short at the minute,” he said.
“He would have to show a lot more. He’s doing alright in training but there’s more he has to do.
“It’s a bit of lack of fitness as well, even though he’s played in the under-23s.
“At this moment in time he needs more.”
Jose Mourinho was not pleased with their treatment of Borthwick-Jackson earlier in the campaign, but United still turned down the option to take the Mancunian back in January.
He made 14 first-team appearances under Louis van Gaal last season and it’s a shame to see he hasn’t been given a chance this campaign as he was immediately loaned out.
