Everton secured a sixth consecutive win at Goodison Park after their 3-2 win over Wolves on Sunday, with two goals from Brazilian forward Richarlison proving key towards victory.

Toffees’ new 19-year-old signing Moise Kean also got his name on the score sheet as he scored his first Premier League goal for the club since joining the Blues from Juventus in the summer, but despite this his feedback from pundits has not all been positive and uplifting.

Sky Sports pundit Graeme Souness, who spent nine years in total at local rivals Liverpool as a player and manager, launched a scathing attack on the Italian protege as the 66-year-old questioned his character and also said the ‘alarm bells’ were going off when the news broke that Juventus were happy to sell him.

Souness said, “At 19, why have they sold him? Personally, slight alarm bells were going off in my head.

“Juventus are arguably the biggest and wealthiest club in Italy, given that they’ve got an older strike force, you’re selling a 19-year-old that won’t be hurting you wage wise, they’ve not got £100m+ for him.

“Do you know if they’ve got a buy-back clause? If they’ve not got that then they’re happy to see him out the door.”

He continued, “It would suggest that off the field activities are not the best. It’s a bit of Adebayor at Arsenal, 25 and just about to enter his best years but Wenger still sold him to City. Right the way you’re thinking, he’s not selling him because he’s not a good football player, it’s because there’s something not quite right with him.”

Everton fans reacted very angrily to his comments, even from legends at the club, you can see some of the best responses below:
