The 17 year old English midfielder of Crewe Alexandra George Cooper is turning heads around with a string of impressive performances that has helped his League One club in securing a few victories but the coach, Steve Davis wants to keep Cooper on a low key and avoid attracting the attention of scouters or other clubs.

George Cooper at the age of 17 has already managed to prove his worth at the big stage as he is a regular performer for Crewe Alexandra in the main team and has even scored sublime free-kick goals with his goal against Coventry City a few days ago being an example of what the young player is capable of doing.

One of the latest league matches of Crewe Alexandra was against Coventry City where George Cooper made his first start at Gresty Road and what a way to make his debut in the home turf of his club as he scored the 2nd goal of his team at the 32nd minute which secured the victory for Crewe Alexandra with a splendid free-kick.

Coventry City never really managed to get back in the game and ultimately lost 2-1.

The manager of Crewe Alexandra, Steve Davis wants to keep George Cooper on the low key and avoid attracting unnecessary attention towards the young player as this can build pressure to the midfielder who only is 17 years old.

“We have to realize how early into his career he is and not spoil him. I’m not going to build him up in the Press to be a superstar, even though I’ve already said he has an influence because he takes our free-kicks and corners.  What George has got to do is concentrate on getting into the team and nothing else, just doing well enough in the week to earn his place on the Saturday, and then perform to the level he’s shown. The rest looks after itself’’

“We can’t control the scouting, and what other clubs see in him, but he’s been talked about for a while now.”  Crewe Alexandra’s Steve Davis told the media.

Davies On Verge Of Losing Job

Crewe Alexandra have one of the worst records in the football league right now after having lost six matches in a row. Their seventh defeat of the season came in the form of a 3-0 thrashing at the hands of Rochdale in the Football League trophy. The recent form sheet does not make a good reading for the club and the manager Stephen Davies, who is on the verge of losing his job if results do not improve quickly. Crewe Alexandra were expected to struggle in the League One this season, but that would have been expecting the monumental collapse.

The season started with a 2-1 defeat against Fleetwood Town, but Crewe appeared to have pulled things together after a 2-0 away victory against Barnsley. Since then, the team has been going for a slide which has left Davies wondering at his next move. The manager said after the match that the defending was simply not up to the mark, but he is confident of turning around this difficult situation. The club only narrowly managed to avoid relegation last season and they were expected to face a series of struggles one more, but few would have expected struggles of this proportion.

The club goes into the match against Port Vale significantly low on confidence, but Davies is confident of getting a result. “The goals haven’t come about because they have opened us up with good play we have just gifted them the goals. The first, there was no pressure on the cross, Brad (Inman) doesn’t track the man and then he gets a free header. That’s been a culmination of how we’ve conceded goals last season and so far this season. You can’t gift goals like that at any level and you won’t win games conceding goals like that,” said Davis.
