“The synergy doesn't feel right. People are constantly talking about his body language," Wright told The Sun Goals app.
“He is bringing him on for two minutes. You'd say when Daniel was younger, he was somebody who has always been very high up in the level he is in.
“Even to the point when he was injured for a while, people were saying when Daniel comes back we'll be alright.
“He has this complex where he is needed. But all of a sudden he's not needed. He's needed but not to the same extent. He is dealing with the fact that he isn't the main guy.
“I don't know how much the manager is into me. It's not happening for me. He has to get back to the training ground and work on trying to get into the team."
