So says Martin O’Neill, who has pointed out that considering the great positions he gets himself into, he should be scoring more often.
It’s something that 5,000 Sunderland fans were given a stark reminder of in the second-half of the game against Wigan when Steven Fletcher put him clean through on goal.
It was such a critical point of the game because if Sess had scored there, it would have been 4-1 to Sunderland and game over.
And he should have scored.
But I don’t necessarily agree with those who think he was trying to be too clever when he was deprived of the ball in the box.
I just think he was caught in two minds and that’s something you would expect far more of a winger in that situation than a striker.
And I think that, in a nutshell, is the heart of the issue.
Stephane has played the vast majority of his career as a winger. He is not a natural striker.
And that’s the challenge he faces in his current role playing just behind Fletcher.
