Wayne Rooney: Everton need to show fight in ‘massive’ Burnley game


Wayne Rooney: Everton

Wayne Rooney has called on the players from his boyhood club Everton to show a fight in their relegation game against Burnley. After the West Ham 2-1 loss, Lampard said he saw enough positives to show that they can climb out of the relegation battle. Everton has been in the first division since 1954 but finds themselves just a point above the relegation zone and faces 18th place, Burnley.

“I got approached by Everton to do an interview for the manager’s job – as I’ve said before – and I’m at Derby. I’m still learning and I felt it wasn’t the right time. Frank has gone in there and it’s a tough job where they’ve been all season,” boyhood Everton fan Wayne Rooney said. “I didn’t feel Rafa (Benitez) was the right fit for Everton coming in. That didn’t work out and the players have lost confidence. Since Frank has come in, he’s tried to create a mentality in the players but the damage has already been done in the early part of the season. It’s how they crawl themselves out of that. They’ve got a massive game on Wednesday away to Burnley and I feel it’s a must-win.”

“I’m very worried [as a supporter]. It was a better performance against West Ham but once you’re in that run of form and you find things difficult – you look at the second goal where (Alex) Iwobi gives the ball away – and these things seem to always happen,” he added. “They just need to hang in there and find a way to pick up results, as they did against Newcastle. That was a game where Newcastle was the better team on the night but Everton won that through the fight and being horrible to play against. They have to go and fight for the shirt and for the club.”
