Everton fans hit back at star as he appears to criticise them on social media

According to an interview on Sky Sports, Everton winger Yannick Bolasie says that teammate Romelu Lukaku has made his decision on his future and that the club can’t stand in his way if he wants to leave.

He said: “I speak to Rom [Lukaku] every day and when a man has his plan, he has his plan. You can’t really stop that.

“Players have ambition, as players they want to play in the highest team possible and Rom for me right now, at his age, is a world class striker and there aren’t many about like him.

“I’m not surprised but I’m sure that Everton are going to find a way to deal with it.”

The Belgian – who has scored 21 Premier League goals this term – has told the Merseyside outfit that he won’t sign the new five-year contract that is on the table, which would make him the highest-paid player in the club’s history.

While Toffees fans were understandably upset at the piece, Bolasie was quick to take to Twitter to suggest that the quotes were taken out of context, and hinted at a criticism of some supporters that had chosen to ignore the positive comments.

However, supporters hit back at him via social media saying that he shouldn’t be speaking on the matter at all.

Not everyone was annoyed with the winger though…
