Moise Kean Needs Patience – Kevin Campbell


Moise Kean Needs Patience – Kevin Campbell

Kevin Campbell believes that highly-rated Everton frontman Moise Kean will come good in English football if he is given the time to find his feet in the Premier League.

Former Juventus striker Kean arrived on Merseyside with a blossoming reputation as one of the most exciting young talents in European football. Luring a highly-rated Italian  international away from Turin was considered quite a coup for the Toffees in the summer transfer window of 2019.


However, up until now the young striker has managed just one goal, in a 2-2 draw with Newcastle in January, for the toffees. Campbell refutes the argument that Kean has been a disappointment on Merseyside. Campbell speaking to Genting Bet said :

“Am I disappointed in Moise Kean? I am not disappointed in Moise Kean.”

“He’s come from a different country. He’s come with a good price tag. He’s a talented boy but it’s taken him a bit of time to adjust.”

“If it takes Nicolas Pepe, who cost 72 million, time to adjust, and we’ve seen other players who have come from abroad actually not cut it in the Premier League at all, I think we’ve got to be a little bit more lenient and give him a bit more time.”

Campbell also had his say on another of Everton’s young strikers, Brazilian Richarlison. Campbell said that Everton won’t be looking to sell the frontman just yet after Barcelona were credited with an enquiry of €100m , Campbell said :

“I don’t think it’s feasible that Everton actually look at a bid for Richarlison of that fee. It’s great that a number like that comes up – £85 to 1£00 million is great considering Everton bought him for £40 million.”

“He is a player that has proven himself.  He’s a bargain at £40 million right now. So to get £85 million to £100 million bid just goes to show, he’s developing at Everton.” 

“He’s not the finished article, that’s for sure. But he’s proven that he can be a match winner and he’s a difference maker. So Everton shouldn’t look at the bid, Everton will build him more.”
