The former Chelsea striker Adrian Mutu has been disappointing for the French club Ajaccio since joining in the summer. Now, the former manager of the French club, Alex Dupont has expressed his disappointment at not seeing the best out of the 33-year-old Romanian international. Mutu was expected to be a major signing for the club in the hopes of doing well in the French league. However, the striker has managed just two goals in 11 matches he has played for the club, which has lifted them closer to the relegation zone. The team has managed just five victories all season, while they have averaged just over a goal per game.
Alex Dupont, who has since been sacked by the club, was responsible for bringing the striker to the club in the summer. He has said that he expected a lot more from the striker in terms of his physicality when he arrived at the club. He is not surprised to see the striker struggled to score goals in the French league. Over the years, the striker has managed to make 75 appearances for the national team. He has played for the likes of Fiorentina, Juventus, and Chelsea. He has not been the same player since his ill-fated rein at Chelsea.
“When Mutu arrived he was not physically in the game and he did not bring what we expected of him. I may have put him on the field a little too quickly. When I recruited Mutu, I thought he would bring more to the team. I cannot accept it all. His level of attitude and behaviour was largely insufficient. His state of mind was a bit complicated,” said the former Ajaccio manager, Dupont. The club have managed just one victory in the last five matches and are in a real relegation trouble.
