Redknapp heavily criticises ‘talentless’ Everton team

Everton have endured plenty of turmoil this season, with managerial changes and brushes with Premier League relegation.

Ronald Koeman spent more than £100m on new players last summer, but his plans to rejuvenate the squad backfired as the team struggled to gel.

After dropping too close to the bottom three, the Merseyside outfit made a change and Sam Allardyce was brought in to replace the Dutch coach.

Initially, the experienced manager steadied the ship as he steered the club away from the danger zone, but recent results have left the fans feeling frustrated.

At the weekend, the team were beaten 2-1 by Burnley at Turf Moor, which resulted in the Toffees falling from ninth to 11th in the table and only seven points above relegation.

Former Tottenham Hotspur and Liverpool midfielder Jamie Redknapp has given his take on the situation, and it will not be ideal reading for Everton supporters.

While speaking to Sky Sports, the pundit said:

“They are going to find some points and they will stay up, but looking forward to next season, Evertonians want a little bit of optimism but at the moment, there’s not a lot to be excited about. When I look at them, I don’t see a team. I played against Everton for many years with really good players. They had a philosophy of how they wanted to play, they were aggressive, got the ball into wide areas but I look at them now and go ‘what are they?’ There’s no real talent that’s going to get me on the edge of my seat when I watch Everton.”
