Everton fans on Twitter unimpressed with Klaassen’s recent comments

Everton supporters will be hoping their latest summer acquisitions can make more of an impact than Davy Klaassen did when he was at the club. 

£13.5m-rated (via Transfermarkt) Klaassen arrived at Goodison Park last summer following a successful season with Eredivisie giants Ajax but failed to make any relevant contribution during his short spell in Merseyside.

The 25-year-old has now moved to Bundesliga outfit Werder Bremen and has since had some harsh words to say about the English game.

Speaking to Aller-Zeitung newspaper (via Sport Witness), Klaassen said: “In England, it’s all about the money – because it’s just there.

“Basically the clubs can shop as they want. In Germany, this really big money is not there. The clubs are more concerned with developing an idea, a philosophy. For me, the move to Bremen is also something of a change back to the roots of football.”

There is no denying the financial clout of the Premier League, but Klaassen is clearly bitter following his disastrous and short-lived spell in England as an Everton player.
