Lots of Everton fans have been lauding Carlo Ancelotti as he mocked Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp when talking about an injury to James Rodriguez.
Speaking in his pre-game press conference (per The Gwladys Street) ahead of their match against Southampton in the Premier League, the Italian said with reference to Rodriguez’s injury:
“We will wait for him like a good wife when the husband is in jail.”
This is a mockery of what Klopp said upon being asked about the injury suffered to Virgil van Dijk in the Merseyside derby from a challenge made by Jordan Pickford.
Will Ancelotti stay at Everton for the long-term?
Despite the bad news of the injury to Rodriguez, who will now miss the game against the Saints at the weekend, some members of the Goodison Park faithful took pleasure in what Ancelotti said.
The Toffees will want to maintain their position at the top of the Premier League with a win, but they will now have to try and do so without the Colombia international.
