Sunderland's Yorke critical of Jones

Dwight Yorke has launched a staggering attack on Sunderland colleague and compatriot Kenwyne Jones, insisting his goal return simply 'isn't good enough'.

After an impressive start to life in The Premier League Jones' form soon dipped and he scored just seven goals all season.

Yorke insists Jones should be far from proud of that statistic, and he believes any comparisons to Didier Drogba are currently ridiculous.

"People have talked about him being the new Didier Drogba but you don't earn that type of reputation after one season in The Premier League and you've scored only seven goals," Yorke said in the Star on Sunday.

"Seven goals isn't good enough. Drogba scores 20-plus goals every season and that is what Kenwyne has to do.

"Until he starts doing that he shouldn't start getting carried away with himself.

"Seven goals is an extremely poor season and if you are talking about a top striker and someone fulfilling obvious potential, and you have people around him ranting and raving about him, he needs to do a lot better."
