COVID-19: Everton ‘appalled’ by Moise Kean lockdown breach

Everton say they are ‘appalled’ after images of striker Moise Kean at a houseparty surfaced this week.

The Daily Star reported that the striker had filmed himself while at the party in his own apartment.

Everton said they are “appalled to learn of an incident in which a first-team player ignored government guidance and club policy in relation to the coronavirus crisis”.

The club say it has “strongly expressed its disappointment to the player.”

In a club statement, Everton went on to say:

“Everton has regularly stressed the importance of following all the government guidelines – including rules and advice for inside and outside of the home – through a series of official communications to all staff members, including players.

“The amazing people in the NHS deserve the utmost respect for their hard work and sacrifice. The best way to show them respect is by doing everything we can to protect them.”

The first season on English soil for £25.1m man Moise Kean hasn’t been as successful as he would have wanted it to be, having been relegated to back-up status.

Dominic Calvert-Lewin and Brazilian Richarlison lead the line for Everton while Kean warms the bench, often coming on to very little effect.

The low point of his season saw him face the ultimate humiliation as then manager Marco Silva subbed him on at Old Trafford, only to sub him back off again minutes later.

When this pandemic and lockdown is all over, you can guarantee Kean and his agent will be looking for an exit plan from Everton. The move really hasn’t gone to plan, but he’s still only 20 – there’s time to fix it yet.
