Everton winger Andy Van Der Meyde got off to a rather poor start in his Premiership career with Everton. Theft of his dogs, fatness, getting drunk and being bad at football just some of the problems afflicting him. He started to show glimpses of being half decent, but has recently been pushed back to the fringes of the squad again.
Manager David Moyes told the press the Dutchman was injured and unavailable for selection against Arsenal recently, but apparently it was a bold faced lie,
“The manager doesn’t have to be telling downright lies,” the former Internazionale man is quoted in the Daily Record.
“It was total nonsense that I was injured. I was completely fit.
“I had played a practice match two days before that and didn’t have any bother at all.
“The facts are simply that the trainer didn’t select me for the group.
“My situation here isn’t easy only playing in home matches.
“I think the trainer simply has to be honest and tell me why I’ve got to sit in the stand.”
Have to side with the Everton boss on this one, as we find it hard to believe that David Moyes felt he needed to lie in order to have a good reason for not playing Andy Van Der Meyde.
