Many Everton fans have been left fuming as some early team news emerged ahead of their away game at Leeds United on Saturday afternoon.
Should Everton have kept Rodriguez?
There has been a lot of speculation that the Colombia international could still leave before the summer transfer window shuts, as he has even admitted that he does not know where his future lies.
Rodriguez missed a fair chunk of matches in his debut season at Goodison Park, whether that would be because of injury or other reasons, and that has carried on into this campaign, leaving a lot of the Merseyside club’s supporters frustrated that he is not playing enough for them, with some even calling to cut their losses.
Everton fans on Rodriguez news
These Toffees fumed as the news from Rodriguez about him not playing against the Whites was shared on Twitter:
“Just get it over with so we can replace him”
“Acting like a toddler. Get rid”
“Complete 180 on this fella now. Be glad to see him gone, he’s like a particularly bad episode of Hollyoaks now.”
“I’m not convinced he will ever give Everton 100% even if he does play again so time to move on, no player is bigger than Everton FC!!”
“James is a snake like Ancelotti. Pushed for a move like MMA similar to when he wouldn’t sign for Bayern after a loan spell with them. Benitez probably went along with it to get the £200k a week off the wage bill and enable getting players who want to play for Everton”
“Troublemaker this kid”
