Everton continued preparations for the new season by taking on Championship side Blackburn Rovers in a training-ground friendly on Saturday.
The Blues ran out 1-0 winners thanks to a goal from Jean Phillipe-Gbamin just before half-time. The Ivorian converted the rebound after returning striker Moise Kean’s shot was saved.
The Italian striker spent last season on loan at Mauricio Pochettino’s Paris Saint-Germain and scored 16 goals in all competitions. That was in stark contrast to his meagre return of four goals in 37 competitive appearances for the Toffees.
What’s the latest on Moise Kean’s future?
According to journalist Saber Desfarges, Kean is growing ‘impatient’ as he looks to secure a return to the French capital.
Fabrizio Romano says that PSG have been in talks with Everton for ‘months’ in the hope of striking another loan agreement. The Ligue 1 runners-up have been left waiting for a ‘final decision’ from the club and their new manager Rafael Benitez.
Fan feed Toffee TV posted a snap of Kean’s reaction to Gbamin’s goal against Blackburn, noting that it was ‘good to see’ him back in an Everton shirt. However, with many noticing that the 21-year-old looked bowed and less than ecstatic, some supporters took this as a sign of him being “sulky” and questioned his attitude.
Everton fans critical of Kean demeanour
“Blimey, looks over the moon. That pic captures the reason we don’t want him at the club. Poor attitude, really hope someone wants him, have no time for him at all.”
“Doesn’t look happy, it’s the poor attitude and body language for me just looks like he wants to go fast”
“If he continues to behave with a sulky attitude like this, do not give him what he wants.”
“He looks as happy as ever to be back.”
“Pity he doesn’t look interested in playing for us.”
“His attitude reeks man”
