Everton fans react as details emerge over Moise Kean’s weekend absence

Everton striker Moise Kean was dropped for the Southampton due to a breach of club discipline, Sky Sports have reported.

The teenager  – who cost £27.5 million to sign from Juventus in the summer (BBC Sport) – was not included by Marco Silva to take on the Saints at St. Mary’s Stadium on Saturday.

It is the second time Kean has been late for a team meeting since joining the club.

Eyebrows were raised when Kean’s name was left off the teamsheet, and some criticised Silva who appeared to have dropped the 19-year-old for ‘tactical reasons’.

The manager has not been using Kean too much lately and that has not sat well with some Toffees supporters.

Speaking before the game when asked, he said: “Yeah. [His reaction was] really good.

A number of Everton fans expressed their concerns about Kean on Twitter, given that this is the second time he has been punished for being late, but there were also some supporting the youngster:
