Tony Bellew, a boxing legend, warned rioting Everton fans to “think about what this is portraying us as” after Anthony Gordon’s car was pursued by enraged fans..
Toxicity lingers around Goodison Park following Frank Lampard’s side’s 2-1 loss to 20th-placed Southampton. The costly defeat to the Premier League’s bottom club leaves the Toffees in 19th place, one point from safety.
Everton issued a statement before the Saints game saying that their board of directors had been told to stay away from the game due to a’real and credible’ threat to their safety..
After Everton fans angrily confronted defender Yerry Mina, and Gordon’s car was blocked and chased by supporters following the game, Bellew took to his 740,200 followers to condemn the actions of a small but vocal minority.
“This is not right,” Bellew tweeted to his followers. “Consider what this portrays us as.
“He’s just a kid trying to get back home after playing for his club!” I understand that we are all frustrated and have had enough, but this is not the way to go!
After seeing this, who will want to fight or play for us? It’s a disaster.” Everton players were also reportedly told to postpone their departure from Goodison Park in order to avoid enraged Everton fans..
However, Gordon did not appear to benefit from this advice. Furious Everton fans chased the 21-year-car old’s and then blocked it with a plastic traffic bollard. Former Everton player Don Hutchison also spoke out against the overly aggressive supporters.
Sorry. But, according to a minority of Everton fans, Anthony Gordon’s behavior after the game was disgusting!
“I bet he’s now thinking get me out of here (please don’t say good if he doesn’t want to be here let him go)” It was shocking behavior. That type of behavior does not reflect well on Everton Football Club..
