Sunderland boss Moyes: Djilobodji will get better

Sunderland boss David Moyes has no doubts over the quality of Papy Djilobodji.

Moyes insists Papy Djilobodji will “get better" and is convinced he has “good raw material" to work with.

“We can't keep leaking goals," admitted the manager to the Sunderland Echo. “What I will say about Papy is that he is aware of a couple of mistakes he has made.

“He's watched the clips on the video and we've looked at what he should have done better and how he should have dealt with things.

“He's accepting that. We're on the pitch with him trying to make things better.

“It would be worse if it was someone saying 'no, I'm not making any mistakes, I'm doing fine'.

“But he's accepted it and he understands it.

“When you have people who accept they've made mistakes, there is every chance of making them better.

“I think Papy will get better and I have to say he has not played that badly, it's been more about lapses in concentration in games."
