Many Everton fans are livid with the club’s transfer dealings after Seamus Coleman picked up an injury while away with Republic of Ireland on international duty.
The Toffees brought in four new players during the summer transfer window – Demarai Gray, Andros Townsend, Asmir Begovic and Salomon Rondon were the faces to make the move to Goodison Park. However, given Coleman’s previously known injury issues (Transfemarkt), it was a surprise the Merseyside outfit did not look to bring in another right-back, where Jonjoe Kenny is the only natural backup to the Irishman.
Rafael Benitez has been left in a potentially difficult position after what occurred during the international break. Coleman was in action for Ireland against Azerbaijan in World Cup qualifying on Saturday, but the 32-year-old picked up an issue and may now be a doubt for Everton’s clash against Burnley this weekend.
Unsurprisingly, many of the club’s supporters are fuming with Marcel Brands and the Toffees’ board for failing to bring in another right-back.
Do Everton need another right-back?
The fans took to social media platform Twitter to share their anger over the state of affairs.
Let’s see what these fans had to say about Coleman’s injury
“So Coleman gets injured and Everton didn’t buy the replacement. Clowns”
“7 windows of incompetence by Brands”
“All of a sudden I’m less confident about upcoming games…”
“The club is an absolute joke – nailed on he’d get injured sooner rather than later”
“You could write this at 22:55 on transfer deadline day. We’re Everton, make ludicrous and costly decisions & still cannot run a business no matter which multimillionaires are involved. I’ve been disgusted like never before the last few months.”
“Well done Brands , Not signing a quality backup for Coleman is the latest in a whole string of bad judgement calls by Brands @everton. We need to give JJ his chance if our captain is out for a while. In our badly depleted squad. Anyone else wants Brands’ head.”
