Players to blame for Wales' poor form, says Liverpool's Allen

Liverpool and Wales midfielder Joe Allen is insistent that the players are to blame after Wales’ shocking 6-1 defeat to Serbia in Novi Sad, not manager Chris Coleman, the Liverpool Echo has reported.

Wales’ aspirations of World Cup qualification took a massive blow after a second defeat in two games left them rooted to the bottom of Group A.

Prior to Coleman taking over the reins at the helm of the Welsh national team, they had seen impressive form under the late Gary Speed with four wins in five matches. However, Coleman is yet to register a victory in his five matches as Wales’ Coach.

Despite this, Allen believes that the players should take the criticism for the performance, not Coleman. On the match he said: “The manager he has done everything he can to prepare us and send us out on to the field. It’s us as players who are letting everybody down at the moment.

I can say that on behalf of all of us - me included - it just wasn’t good enough and we were to blame.

Wales’ next World Cup qualification match sees a British derby, as Scotland, also without a win in the group, come to Cardiff.
