Many Everton fans have been flocking to a behind-the-scenes claim on Rafael Benitez.
As per The Athletic, some key players at Goodison Park faithful have concerns with regards to the style of play that the Spaniard is trying to implement. They feel as if it is limiting their own ability, with one player even going as far as to claim that it is ‘ugly football’.
Should Everton have hired Benitez?
This comes after the Toffees were humiliated 4-1 at home by their bitter rivals Liverpool, which now makes it eight games in the Premier League without a win.
One such player to raise concerns could well be Lucas Digne, who finds himself averaging fewer crosses and passes than last season in the top flight, while he recorded seven assists last term compared to none so far in this campaign (WhoScored).
Nonetheless, when players seemingly start to turn on the manager, it is never a good sign for the club going forward.
