The great Kane Horns of Port Adelaide set the Collingwood star on fire Jordan De Goey to raise his level of play, saying that he is currently letting his side down.
De Goey’s form to start the 2021 season mirrored that of his team, with the 25-year-old blowing extremely hot and cold for four games. Of his seven goals this season, four have come against Carlton in Collingwood’s lone victory.
Collingwood re-signed De Goey on a two-year, $ 750,000 contract at the end of last season, but Cornes said the contrast in his performance to Giants skipper Toby Greene this weekend was proof that ‘he did not respect his high price. .
“For me he’s not fit enough,” Cornes told Nine’s. Footy Ranked.
“Six years (in the AFL), 25 years and 100 games, he finished in the top 10 and fairer once. He’s not living up to his expectations and wants to be paid.
“He needs to be fitter and he needs to really look at himself because right now he’s letting Collingwood down.”
De Goey’s high contract expectations were one of the reasons for the sale of the Collingwood Fire in last year’s commercial period, which saw Adam treloar leave the club under controversial circumstances.
There is a feeling among AFL circles that the Magpies chose De Goey over Treloar, and Footy Ranked Host Craig Hutchison questioned the merits of such a decision.
“The first signs are not good for this decision,” he said.
“There is a long way to go, but they have invested a lot of money in De Goey in the hope that he will become a Dustin (Martin), when all the evidence on display is that he will not be that player. .
“I can’t understand the Treloar decision. Why did you spend so much time and effort going to poach someone from another team, sign them, build your web around them, put them in a documentary, their back-end contract and then tip them because you have to put the money into another player.
“How many players are they paying that aren’t there? They pay Treloar a lot of money for five years, Dayne Beams is still getting paid, it’s kinda boring.”
