Everton fans on Twitter hit out at Barkley

Chelsea take on MOL Vidi this evening in the Europa League at Stamford Bridge in a game where former Everton midfielder Ross Barkley is expected to start.

Barkley joined the Blues back in January but struggled to make an impact under ex-boss Antonio Conte largely because of injury.

However, he has impressed more often than not this season with Maurizio Sarri now in the Stamford Bridge dugout, and the 24-year-old believes failure to do so in the past has been down to a lack of coaching.

Speaking to the Evening Standard and other publications ahead of Chelsea’s European encounter with MOL Vidi, Barkley said: “Over the years I haven’t really been coached much.

“When you go through the youth system, you’re always going in to do analysis work, you’re looking at every way of improving and your coaches are always on top of you.

“And once you go into the first team it can change, because game to game managers are focusing on weekly results, not player development.”

£22.5m-rated (via Transfermarkt) Barkley has yet to reach the level many would have expected him to by now, and coaching may possibly be a massive factor as alluded to by the England international.
