Leeds United lost against Brighton & Hove Albion in the Championship on Friday evening.
Preece, who is 40 years of age, was not impressed with the performance of Green for Leeds against Brighton & Hove Albion away from home in the Championship on Friday evening.
The 36-year-old goalkeeper, who joined the Whites in the summer transfer window after leaving Queens Park Rangers at the end of the 2015-16 campaign, started the match at the American Express Community Stadium and played for the entire 90 minutes.
Leeds lost the match 2-0, thanks to two penalties, the first of which saw Kalvin Phillips sent off.
Preece has criticised Green’s involvement in the opening spot kick and has also slammed his overall performance in the match.
Green doesn't need to be close to Phillips, who is guarding Baldock from interfering with Green. He's giving Green the room he needs to come pic.twitter.com/W7qw5foXx6— David Preece (@davidpreece12) December 9, 2016
But instead of taking a step back, he steps forward to push his own player, thereby killing his chance of moving his feet to take the cross. pic.twitter.com/g4AbcHapgE— David Preece (@davidpreece12) December 9, 2016
If he lets Phillips do his job and just concentrates on the ball, he takes that cross, or at least touches it away.— David Preece (@davidpreece12) December 9, 2016
Also that's the third time he's been troubled by Brighton's quality in the box and getting caught in no man's land.— David Preece (@davidpreece12) December 9, 2016
See? That's 5 corners into that back third area of the goal. And Green isn't getting pinned to his line. He's actually doing it to himself.— David Preece (@davidpreece12) December 9, 2016
If you master the footwork technique of moving backwards diagonally into that area, you master a huge percentage of dealing with crosses.— David Preece (@davidpreece12) December 9, 2016
Over the course of the 90 minutes at the American Express Community Stadium on Friday evening, hosts Brighton had 60% of the possession, took 18 shots of which seven were on target, and earned seven corners, according to BBC Sport.
