Koe­man’s Tof­fee fury


RON­ALD KOE­MAN ripped into his team in a clear-the-air sum­mit over his fears they are not tough enough. The Ever­ton boss took the blame for an­other lame 3-0 de­feat, this time in Ata­lanta just days af­ter a sim­i­larly spine­less dis­play at home to Tot­ten­ham. Koe­man said: “It’s time for ex­pe­ri­enced and key play­ers to stand up. I’m wor­ried about what I saw in Ata­lanta. It was a

sea­son, plun­der­ing 253 goals to beat Sir Bobby Charl­ton’s long-stand­ing record. “I think he’ll get the welcome that he de­serves,” said United boss Mour­inho yes­ter­day. “Some­times in this coun­try, the word leg­end comes too eas­ily. “That’s not the case here. He’s a real leg­end of Manch­ester United. “The num­ber of ap­pear­ances, goals and tro­phies – clearly he is one of the most im­por­tant play­ers in our his­tory. “The sta­dium will show him the re­spect he de­serves, I hope, be­fore and af­ter the match – but not dur­ing the match. “He’s an Ever­ton player who wants to win.”
