Walcott is pushing to play centrally for club and country.
âI donât understand this whole idea of Theo Walcott playing up front,â Barnes told talkSPORT. âTheo has been scoring goals from a wide position, [so it doesn't make any sense].
âFrank Lampard, and David Platt before him, got goals regularly but they didnât say, âbecause we score, we want to play up frontâ.
âTheo has to understand that his best position is coming in from the wide areas, where he can still score his goals.â
