Everton fans react as Sam Allardyce speaks out on Seamus Coleman

Everton posted a quote from manager Sam Allardyce about Seamus Coleman, rated at €15m (£13.4m) according to Transfermarkt, on the club’s official Twitter account on Thursday, and Toffees fans were quick to react.

The Republic of Ireland international has returned to the first team in recent weeks following almost a year on the sidelines after he suffered a double leg break while playing for his country in 2017, and Allardyce has obviously been pleased with his performances and the impact he has made, while the Goodison Park faithful have enjoyed his link up with Theo Walcott on the right.

The 29-year-old right-back picked up an assist for Cenk Tosun’s goal in his side’s 2-1 defeat against Burnley at Turf Moor last weekend, with his manager labelling him as “the complete footballer”.

Everton supporters have taken to social media to give their thoughts on the quotes, and while one said “Fat Sam FINALLY got something right”, another said “I can’t stand listening to this man speak about our players”.

Here is just a selection of the Twitter reaction…
