The veteran forward has only managed two goals in 12 appearsnces in all competitions, leading to criticism of his display. And Vieri has now defended him.

“I don’t know why Gary Lineker works on TV. He scored all of his goals in the six-yard box,” he told BeIN SPORTS.

“The thing is, he’s a striker, so when a striker doesn’t score for a couple of games, you going to kill him?

“He should know better.”
