"Wayne Rooney Furious At 'Bulls**t" Substitution In Merseyside Derby

Sam Allardyce speaks to the press during the Everton press conference ahead of the Merseyside Derby at USM Finch Farm

EVERTON boss Sam Allardyce will sit down with Wayne Rooney this week to discuss the striker's furious reaction to being substituted during the Merseyside derby.

Allardyce added that he would continue to use Rooney in a midfield role given the poor form of Davy Klaassen, but admitted that the former United player can at times struggle to perform against high quality opposition. Yes, they are all midfielders, but seeing those three as interchangeable pieces really just indicates to me that your tactical instructions are no more complicated than just telling the midfield "hey, you three, stand in the middle and pass the ball".

Before then, the 25-year-old who has earned the nickname "Cheese Straw" in Holland owing to his stature and hair, hasn't played since September last year.

A 0-0 draw against a weakened Liverpool side in yesterday's Merseyside derby increased scrutiny on Allardyce's position at Goodison Park.

"But I make the decisions, and those decisions I think have made the team more of an attacking force, and gave us more opportunities to win the game". When those stats match what I've seen, for any player, it's where we make our decisions.

'He did not play very properly within the first half towards Manchester Metropolis however earlier than that he had been excellent, ' mentioned Allardyce.

The Reds thrashed the Citizens 3-0 in the first leg of the quarter-final at Anfield last week and already have one foot in the semi-finals.

"When you finish the game strongly and put Liverpool under pressure then you consider yourself unlucky", said Allardyce.

"When our substitutes came on with fresh legs and a bit more determination because the other lads had run their legs off we started to get amongst Liverpool more".

Allardyce, who feels like he needs to win every single game to win popularity amongst Everton's irritated fanbase, described Klaassen as an "anomaly".

"Can I stick up for Rooney?"

Jordan Henderson won't play in the second leg of their Champions League quarter-final tie at Manchester City because he's suspended, while Emre Can, who would usually play there instead, is injured.
