Professional dullard Michael Owen has accused West Ham United's Cheikhou Kouyate of being "a bit lazy".
The former Liverpool striker, speaking on BT Sport at the weekend hit out at the Senegal international following United's defeat at Bournemouth on Saturday afternoon.
"Kouyate has been playing right-back," he told fellow pundits. "He was poor at Watford, gave a penalty away. I don't think he's a right-back at all - I don't think he's disciplined enough.
"I think he's a bit lazy. He doesn't track runners really. That's a mistake, playing him right-back."
37-year-old Owen, who once bought a whole street in Ewloe, North Wales for members of his family to live in was heavily criticised last week after he was witnessed leaping around the BT Sport studio joyfully celebrating Barcelona's final goal in their 6-1 defeat of Paris St Germain.
