Derby County finally brought a four-match losing sequence in all competitions to an end as they came from behind to beat Wigan Athletic 2-1 at the Pride Park Stadium on Tuesday night, but Rams fans weren’t impressed with winger Florian Jozefzoon’s performance.
The 28-year-old joined the east Midlands outfit from Brentford last summer for an undisclosed fee and has made 31 appearances in total for them this term, although the majority of those outings have come from the substitutes’ bench.
The attacker was handed a second successive Championship start by Frank Lampard against Paul Cook’s men in midweek though, but he failed to take his opportunity to impress before he was replaced by Duane Holmes in the 57th minute – with his team trailing 1-0.
Derby supporters took to social media to have their say on the Dutchman, whom Lampard said was an “exciting player” when he arrived, and while one labelled him as an “Abdoul Camara wannabe”, another described him as a “poor signing”.
Here is just a selection of the Twitter reaction…
Has Jozefzoon even touched the ball?

Jozefzoon up there with the worst derby players I’ve ever seen

I’m pretty sure that Malone put more crosses into the box than Jozefzoon and he was playing behind him (sums up the lack of impact and quality he has) 🐏⚪️⚫️

Still struggling to see what Jozefzoon offers. Frank seems to like him though.

Jozefzoon shouldn’t be starting for Derby, he’s had a lot of chances now and each time has failed to deliver

Poor signing IMHO
..that what worries me about this:
“Transition season. Give Frank time to bring his own signings ober the summer blah blah” nonsense
