During Lockdown due to COVID-19, everyone is supposed to stay indoors many people are found violating the law. One such person was Everton striker Moise Kean. It is disappointing to hear that Kean, filmed himself partying with friends until the early hours of the morning during the COVID-19 pandemic, in a clear breach of the government’s social distancing rules.
Everton branded Moise Kean’s actions as ‘unacceptable’ after the striker flouted lockdown restrictions on coronavirus. The Liverpool Echo says he could be forced to pay a fine of around £100,000, which accounts for about two weeks’ salaries for the forward, even though Everton is unlikely to confirm any punishment.
Kean, who joined Juventus from Everton last summer for a reported £24million, is likely to face disciplinary action.
A club statement read: “Everton Football Club was appalled to learn of an incident in which a first-team player ignored guidance from the government and club policy on the coronavirus crisis. “The club expressed strongly its disappointment with the player and made it clear that such actions are totally unacceptable.
“Everton has regularly stressed the importance of following all the guidelines of government – including rules and advice for indoors and outdoors – through a series of official communications to all staff members, including players.
“The incredible people at the NHS deserve the greatest respect for their hard work and sacrifice. Kean is the latest Premier League player to flout the rules after Jack Grealish and Kyle Walker were forced to apologize for breaking lockdown restrictions, while Tottenham pair Serge Aurier and Moussa Sissoko were filmed training together earlier this week.”
20-year-old Kean has failed to impress, scoring for the Toffees only once in 26 games, in his debut season in England.
