In an exclusive interview with Football FanCast, Keith Gillespie, who has made 86 appearances for Northern Ireland, claims that Jordan Jones is too good to play for Sunderland in the Premier League.
Jones is currently hired by Rangers after signing temporarily in January for the rest of the season and has certainly attracted attention with three goals and four assists since arriving at Wearside.
Is Jordan Jones too good for Sunderland?
The 26-year-old was involved in a controversial breach of COVID restrictions during his stay at Rangers, which followed him when he joined Sunderland, as he was removed when he arrived.
Speaking about how Jones is too good for the Premier League and has to play at a higher level for the good of Northern Ireland, Gillespie speaks extremely FFC:
“It’s Sunderland a large club but they must to take promoted from League One, because I I think Jordan Jones is too good for League One and he is an important player for North Ireland when he right play.
“COh hopefully he can finish season strongly and earn yourself a move because we must players playing as high as possible in the league Northern Ireland.”
Sunderland have secured a place in the playoffs for the second time in three seasons, but will be disappointed that with one win in six games they stopped their fee for an automatic promotional place.
Lee Johnson will hope that their recent victory at Wembley at Pope John Trophy will give his country a psychological advantage if they reach Wembley again.
