Robbie Savage said on the BBC Radio 5 live 606 show last Saturday evening (February 6) that Derby County’s biggest problem is that they have too many players.
“I think the biggest problem with Derby is too many players, too many,” said the former Derby County midfielder. “I know it sounds ridiculous. No consistency in the team.”
When asked if Derby are contenders for promotion to the Premier League, the former Wales international said: I think they are contenders. They are in fifth place in the minute. They are on a terrible run, aren’t they? Let’s get it right.”
Derby are fifth in the Championship table at the moment with 51 points from 30 matches.
The Rams are five points behind leaders Hull City, who have a game in hand.
Derby, who sacked Paul Clement as their head coach on Monday evening, have been in poor form in recent weeks.
The former Premier League outfit have some of the best players in the Championship, but it seems that they may have to settle for a place in the playoffs this campaign.
The likes of Darren Bent, Bradley Johnson, Tom Ince and Stephen Warnock are all good players, and hopefully for the fans, results will start to improve soon.
Derby will return to action on Saturday afternoon when they will take on Milton Keynes Dons at the iPro Stadium in the Championship.
