Many Everton fans have been left fuming as some comments emerged from James Rodriguez.
Speaking on his Twitch channel (via The Toffee Blues), the Colombia international admitted that he did not know who the Goodison Park faithful were playing over the weekend: “I don’t even know who Everton plays with, if you can tell me please.”
Should Everton have kept Rodriguez?
This comes after he said that he is not going to play any part in the game, which is away at Leeds United in the Premier League on Saturday afternoon.
Rodriguez has been linked with a move away from the Merseyside club throughout the summer transfer window so far, and comments like these suggest that he is not overly bothered about his current employers.
Thus, it is not a surprise to see so many Toffees supporters angry at his total lack of awareness and application.
Everton fans on Rodriguez comments
These Blues fumed as the comments were shared on Twitter, with one EFC fan even going as far as to claim that Rodriguez was a ‘bad egg’:
“Time to get rid of this bad egg James Rodriguez now and end this love in for him that the Echo falls brigade have created. Not only is he disrespecting the fans and the club with his latest comments but the players also.”
“You know what get him gone”
“Moronic comment from him, If true. Fast going off this bloke & I’m sure lots more!”
“If this is true, its time to go @jamesdrodriguez. You have just burnt a lot of bridges I reckon, gonna be a hard one to come back from…”
“Get this dude off our club @Everton. Don’t even care about making money off his release. Just insanely disrespectful.”
“If this it true, it is totally disrespectful and unprofessional.”
