Earning high praise

After another impressive performance last night, Sinclair has earned high praise from teammate Paul Gallagher.

Here’s what he had to say:

“He’s growing into the Scott Sinclair that I played against years ago. 

“He was at Swansea when I was at Leicester. It was a really good team under Roberto Martinez; they played some really good football.

“Scott played then and he played under Brendan Rodgers as well I think when they went up. He’s just one of those players, he will work really hard, play a good pass, win you a penalty, get you a goal.

“He’s a real threat. Sometimes he will be in and out of a game but then he’ll just come to life and create an opportunity, win a penalty, or score a goal.

“Those players, you need to keep on the pitch because they win you a game. Scott is an experienced player, it’s a joy to play with him.”
