Eleven games into his Everton career it’s fair to say that Moise Kean is not having the best of times at the club.
The Italian youngster arrived at Goodison in a big-money move from Juventus in the summer, and there was plenty of optimism around his arrival.
Not only were Everton getting a highly-rated young forward for a reasonable price, but they were also adding the kind of striker the side was desperately lacking.
Things have not worked out well for him so far, though, with no goals and him currently struggling to even get a starting place.
Last weekend saw him hit a new low as he was left out of the squad for the win over Southampton, with it later revealed it was because of him turning up late to a team meeting.
It’s not the first time that’s happened for the player, with him and Italy teammate Nicolo Zaniolo demoted from the Italy squad earlier this year as punishment for the same offence.
That caused plenty of anger in Italy at the time, and this latest incident has Gazzetta on the attack once again.
‘Kean never learns’ is the headline from the newspaper on the Everton striker, with them stating the youngster is ‘certainly not distinguishing himself’ in England.
They say Keane ‘always finds a way to make people talk about him’ and his latest ‘feat’ was the incident at Southampton.
Like most people, the newspaper aren’t impressed, stating that ‘the wolf loses the hair but not the habit’. In other words, a leopard doesn’t change its spots.
Gazzetta finish by reflecting sadly on how it’s seemingly gone wrong for Kean, who not long ago seemed to have ‘exploded’ in Juventus but is now in ‘oblivion’ at Everton.
It feels very much like they were waiting for this.
