Everton’s Kevin Miralles has chosen to gob off about James Tomkins ahead of his team’s clash with Spurs this afternoon !
A week on it seems, he can’t let it go and takes the moral high ground by claiming that our central defender set a terrible example for kids.
One answer to that: “Do you think that by reminding them – as you pursue an easy headline and attract some attention to yourself – is a good idea then mate?”
He rants on about “going out there to be the best role model you can – not just for the fans but for the millions of children watching the game at home.”
That last week’s game wasn’t on TV and that his rather unnecessary words may attract pictures of the event in The Sun – thus reminding those “millions of kids” about the event – doesn’t appear to occur to him.
It isn’t until the twelfth paragraph of the story that he apologises for his own part in the events that stirred up the storm and fails to mention that Irons boss Sam Allardyce sorted things out with HIS player very sharply after the match.
We note he has absolutely nothing to say about the activities of James McCarthy who produced a shocking challenge on Morgan Amolfitano or of any other Everton-induced incidents.
The whole affair ceased to be an of Miralles’ business the minute it was over so three words seem a lot more appropriate than his many – JUST SHUT UP!
