Everton: Fans shocked by Rafael Benitez claim

Everton: Fans shocked by Rafael Benitez claim -Everton News

Lots of Everton fans have been left shocked over a claim which emerged from Rafael Benitez.

Speaking in his pre-game press conference ahead of the match at Brentford on Sunday afternoon, the Spaniard stated (via Phil Kirkbride): “We are doing much better with injuries now, compared to the past. Delph is available and training everyday. Gbamin was injured for two years, but is now available and training everyday.”

Should Everton have hired Benitez?

Yes

Yes

No

No

The claim on doing better with injuries is a little strange, given that the Toffees have as many as six players from the first team squad currently out injured at the moment, with three of those having an unknown return date (evertonfc.com).

Only the biggest Everton fan will know who all these players signed from! First up, Jean-Philippe Gbamin...

Also, both Delph and Gbamin have a long history of injury problems since signing for the Merseyside club, so they could fall down injured again at any moment, despite being back in training.

Therefore, it is no surprise to see so many Evertonians left confused by the manager’s comments.
