Everton ace angered by Graeme Souness following what he did in Merseyside derby tie
Everton’s Jordan Pickford may have been the player of the game as they earned another draw against Liverpool in the Merseyside derby.
Jurgen Klopp’s star-studded assault was prevented from scoring by the England international’s run of excellent saves, resulting in a sharing of the spoils on derby day at Goodison Park.
He frequently sprang up immediately after making a game-changing save to chastise his defenders for forcing him to save their bacon, demonstrating his apparent zeal for saving his team.
Graeme Souness is not amused by such attitude and would rather Gareth Southgate’s starting quarterback just perform his job without yelling at his colleagues.
Souness told talkSPORT, “He attracts attention to himself because every time he makes a save, he’s on his feet berating defenders.” “If we were on the same team, I’d be incredibly annoyed by it.
He ought to make the save, get a pat on the back from his teammates, and move on, in my opinion.
In his day, Souness was the type of player who would punish any of his teammates who made a mistake, but it appears that he has become soft-hearted with age.
Pickford is free to confront his defenders with whatever he wants if he believes they could have done more to stop a shot on goal since, paradoxically, the last thing he wants to be doing is what he is paid to do.
These are Premier League footballers, and if they can’t handle being screamed at then they should quit the club immediately. Perhaps he should approach it in a more calm and helpful way.
It all worked out in the end since no shots were allowed past Pickford all day. If Conor Coady hadn’t been a tiny bit offside, Everton may have earned all three points.
Pickford isn’t likely to change his methods since Souness isn’t too happy with him.
