Jim White moots Everton ‘failure in management’ after ‘sour’ behind-the-scenes development – Goodison News

By James Murray
Jim White has mooted a “failure in management” at Everton following the fallout from Demarai Gray’s proposed exit from Goodison Park.
Speaking on talkSPORT on Wednesday (6 September), the presenter questioned whether the Jamaican international’s social media post on 3 September criticising Sean Dyche was an example of another player “getting above his station”.
After Dyche responded to the 27-year-old’s comments on the Blues’ website on 5 September, White asked if it was a “failure in management” that things have become “sour” and are now appearing in public.
“Is this another example, do you think Danny (Murphy) of a player getting above his station?” he asked. “Or is it a failure in management that things have got sour and are appearing in public?”
Respect your contract
It’s clear that something must have happened behind the scenes between Dyche and Gray over the past few months after he started most games under him last season.

While it had been noted earlier in the summer that the Everton boss was open to allowing the Jamaican to leave the club, he surely wouldn’t have completely frozen him out for no reason.
Gray has clearly been frustrated to not have been playing football and that got the better of him when he accused the manager of not respecting him in his social media post.
After the player told the Toffees he had agreed a move away, Dyche was right to point out that it’s down to the club when they choose to sell him because he should respect his contract.
The situation has turned quite ugly in the end, but with the forward looking set to complete his move to Al-Ettifaq, the matter appears to be drawing to a conclusion.
