‘I responded on the pitch’: Everton striker Moise Kean claims he has answered his critics in scoring twice for Italy U21s… after his dad said he made a mistake moving to England
- Moise Kean has struggled to make much of an impression since joining Everton
- His father suggested he had moved to the wrong club and Kean fired back at him
- But after scoring twice for Italy U21s, Kean said he had answered his critics
Kean was a big-money signing for the Toffees in the summer but is yet to score in his four appearances for them, and his father recently gave an interview where he said the 19-year-old was wrong to join them.
The player fired back at his dad on Instagram but claims he gave his best answer on the pitch as he helped Italy to a 6-0 win.
Everton striker Moise Kean says he has ‘responded’ to his critics after two goals for Italy U21s
‘I responded on the pitch, there’s no other way,’ Kean said after the win against Armenia.
‘We have proven to be superior, playing some excellent football.’
The Under-21s manager Paolo Nicolato praised Kean and, while he made it clear that he appreciated it, Kean added that he was eyeing a return to the senior side in the near future.
Kean said: ‘The compliments from the coach make me happy. He’s a coach who works a lot. We are a great team and we have to work to get through this group.
‘Obviously, I hope to get there [back in the Italy squad], that’s everyone’s dream. I want to dedicate this brace to my family, who have always supported me.’
