Moise Kean: English soccer club ‘appalled’ after striker appears to breach lockdown to attend party
“Everton Football Club was dismayed to learn of an incident in which a player on the first team ignored government directives and club policy regarding the coronavirus crisis,” the club said in a statement to CNN.
“The Club has strongly expressed its disappointment with the player and has made it clear that such actions are completely unacceptable.
“Everton has regularly stressed the importance of following all government directives – including rules and advice for inside and outside the home – through a series of official communications to all staff, including the players.
“The incredible people of the NHS deserve the utmost respect for their hard work and sacrifice. The best way to show them respect is to do everything we can to protect them.”
Kean moved to Merseyside last summer from Italian giants Juventus for $ 31.2 million on a five-year contract.
The 20-year-old, however, struggles to make a significant impact, with only one goal in 26 appearances.
Kean’s agent Mino Raiola declined to comment when given the opportunity.
Kean is the latest in a series of Premier League players to break lock restrictions.
Grealish said he was “deeply embarrassed” and told fans to “stay home”. Villa said it had fined and disciplined Grealish.
