Blackburn Rovers boss Tony Mowbray told the Lancashire Telegraph that Reda Khadra needs to start trying his luck if he is to succeed in the Premier League with Brighton & Hove Albion.
The striker scored for Rovers at the weekend as they beat fellow Sky Bet Championship play-off hopefuls Queens Park Rangers in what was a crucial win for Mowbray’s men.
Khadra put in another brilliant performance which has been representative of his form since being loaned out to Ewood Park in August and will no doubt be looking to build on the fact that he has ended the nine-hour drought of the team.
Now Mowbray has spoken out on the youngster after his goal as he recently offered the following assessment of his performance:
“Can we sit here and blame him for missing chances? Maybe, because if he wants to play in the Premier League for Brighton, he has to take those risks.”
Khadra now has five goals and four assists to his name in all competitions this season and is going from strength to strength as a young player.
He is under contract with Brighton until the summer of 2023.
The 20-year-old still has a lot to improve on as he progresses in his career but at the same time he is improving with every game due to the fact that he regularly plays in men’s football.
Khadra also has the advantage of playing under a coach who places a lot of faith in young players and as a result has a brilliant reputation for improving them.
He has been used in a number of different roles since joining Ewood Park and it has certainly challenged him to think outside the box when it comes to his attacking game.
There is no doubt that he will be looking to add to his goalscoring tally before the end of the campaign.
