Everton boss Ronnie Koeman has confirmed that Everton were genuinely in for Moussa Sh*tssoko.

I have to admit I was unconvinced that the Toffees were interested in the player, but I guess the lease purchase deal made the big plinth accessible to a club with notoriously limited funds.

“Yes, but OK, if you look at the rest of the team they have big competition in that area,” Koeman said. “But it was a big signing for them.

We tried also to sign the player and he chose Tottenham, but he is not really involved in many of the games. I don’t know but it was a big signing. You ask Pochettino why he is not involved, I don’t know.”

“If you make that kind of signing, for that money, you expect (them to be playing regularly). Even if I sign a player for that money and he is not normally starting then, yes. I don’t know maybe fitness? I don’t know.”

Koeman is being incredibly respectful to Spurs here.

Sissoko hasn’t featured much and when he has, he’s only confirmed that we bought a lemon.

    everything you get from China is cheap and does not last

      Not true, unlike comments such as yours.

      • osvaldo villa March 4, 2017 at 11:58 am

        OK 99% if it suits

        • Spurstacus 💋 March 4, 2017 at 12:08 pm

          I’d never buy a suit from China.

          • osvaldo villa March 4, 2017 at 12:11 pm

            Or a car made in China

            • osvaldo villa March 4, 2017 at 12:16 pm

              Or china made jn China the stuff made in Stoke is far better and can take a battering on a regular basis

      Fine, those who don’t want Chinese money coming in to our club, and it goes to Chelsea, is at city already and will go to other major clubs , our new stadium will be for nothing.
      As for everything is cheap from China that is a little short sighted i think.

      • osvaldo villa March 4, 2017 at 12:23 pm

        Chavski money is from Russia, Shitea money is from the A-rabs so where does the chinese money come from in your opinion?

        • Andreas March 4, 2017 at 12:45 pm

          From China obviously

        • Andreas March 4, 2017 at 12:55 pm

          Citeh also had an investment of £240 million from China . So who do you want to invest in our club, or you happy being left behind again?
          I only want to challenge the other rich clubs , fed up with st tottering day,
          If Levy gets investment from Usa i am very happy with that. We need investment cause Joe Lewis aint gonna do it.

          • osvaldo villa March 4, 2017 at 1:01 pm

            Where did that figure come from????? have not heard of that before but if I am wrong then fair play I was not aware of that.

            • Andreas March 4, 2017 at 1:24 pm

              That deal happened roughly a couple years ago . They bought small share in citeh. You can check .

  • Andreas March 4, 2017 at 11:45 am

    I think levy needs to get Poch two players he actualy wants not the B or C list players he ends up with. All the rich clubs are trying to steal our best players and eventualy Poch, which keeps them challenging and will greatly weaken us . All it needs is for one of our better players to leave and the rest will follow. We need a huge injection of money what with the stadium build going on at the same time . Are we the only club Chinese companies are not looking at?? Or have they spoken to Levy and thought fuck that?
