Pundit lays into Manchester City goalkeeper Claudio Bravo

Former Liverpool defender and current Sky Sports pundit Jamie Carragher has claimed that Manchester City need to switch goalkeepers at the end of the season.

Claudio Bravo was bought from Barcelona by City boss Pep Guardiola for a reported £15.4m fee in August, but he has failed to impress.

The Chile international has been guilty of some bizarre decisions in between the sticks, and he was at fault again during Sunday’s 4-0 humiliation to Everton at Goodison Park.

City’s entire defence has come under scrutiny this season, but there is hardly any confidence in Bravo from football figures outside of the Etihad Stadium.

Since City were beaten by Chelsea towards the end of December, the 33-year-old has conceded 14 goals from 22 shots on target.

The shot-stopper’s arrival in the summer forced Joe Hart to leave the club and take up a loan deal at Serie A side Torino, but his long-term future is uncertain given that his contract at City does not run out until 2019.

Carragher gave his views on the situation while speaking on Sky Sports’ Monday Night Football:

“Pep Guardiola keeps saying in press conferences that his team has plenty of chances, but don’t score. The opposition have one and score because one, they’re big chances and two, the goalkeeper’s nowhere near good enough.

“Him and the club have now got to be looking for another goalkeeper for next season or they bring Joe Hart back because if Pep Guardiola wants to win the Champions league or the Premier League, which is why he’s been brought in, you won’t win it with that goalkeeper.”
