Moise Kean was DROPPED from Everton’s squad to face Southampton after £27m striker ‘turned up late to team meeting for the second time’
- Moise Kean was punished for turning up late to a pre-match team meeting
- It was the second time Kean had arrived late since his £27m summer move
- Marco Silva punished Kean by leaving him out of his squad on Saturday
Kean, 19, was not even named among Everton’s substitutes at the weekend as the Toffees defeated Southampton 2-1 at St Mary’s.
Everton starlet Moise Kean arrived at St Mary’s with his Everton team-mates but was left out
Kean, who has failed to score for Everton since his transfer, made the trip to St Mary’s but was punished by manager Marco Silva.
The Italian forward is said to have apologised to his manager and team-mates for his poor behaviour.
Asked about his decision to drop Kean on Saturday, Kean suggested it was a tactical call by saying: ‘A decision, just decision.’
The young striker is yet to score since arriving at Goodison Park from Juventus for £27million
The young striker was also punished by Italy boss Roberto Mancini after turning up to a team meeting late at the Under 21 European Championships.
On that occasion, Kean and team-mate Nicolo Zaniolo were ommitted from the senior squad for their actions.
Kean will be hoping he is back in Silva’s plans when Everton host Norwich after the international break.
