Morgan Schneiderlin calls out the Liverpool Echo over claims he was asked to leave training

It's not been a great time for Everton this season, has it?

After spending north of £100m in the transfer market, the Toffees entered 2017/18 with an air of optimism but so far, it has been the polar opposite.

Everton are far closer to the relegation places than they are the top four, with virtually every single player on their roster failing to perform.

Former Southampton midfielder Morgan Schneiderlin has been one of the most disappointing after initially starting life very positively on Merseyside.

Ronald Koeman - who was sacked only last week and replaced by David Unsworth - spent big to bring him in from Manchester United but right now, it looks like a waste.

Schneiderlin was recently sent off in Everton's 3-0 loss away at Lyon and many pundits noticed his seeming lack of care for the club.


On Monday afternoon, reports surrounding the Frenchman intensified as it was said by the Liverpool Echo that Unsworth had actually asked both him and Kevin Mirallas to depart training after a lack of effort.

They were both left out of Sunday's squad to face Watford, a game they actually won 3-2 at Goodison Park.


Supposedly, Duncan Ferguson told the duo on Saturday that if they were not going to bother they should just leave, an offer they took up.

But, the reports may be false, with Schneiderlin taking to Twitter to tell his side of the story.


The Echo has stood by their story.

Who knows which side is correct. The international break has probably occurred at the perfect time for Schneiderlin and Everton, with a nice two-week cooling off period to sort out this mess of a situation.

Time will only tell whether things are repaired but if you see both the Frenchman and Mirallas absent from their match day squad vs Crystal Palace, you can safely say the Echo were correct.
