Everton fans have been left less than impressed by Morgan Schneiderlin’s latest tweet.
Everton were beaten 3-2 by Valencia today, and Schneiderlin was keen to gloss over the result.
The midfielder put a message on Twitter suggesting that Everton were now ready for the first game of the season, which comes next weekend.
However, Toffees fans were left angered, as Marco Silva’s side have looked far from impressive over pre-season.
Everton have lost to the likes of Blackburn Rovers and Valencia in non-competitive matches, with Silva’s side finding wins hard to come by.
And Schneiderin’s tweet was, perhaps, ill advised, as it did not seem to go down well with Toffees fans.
You & Gana in the same team are a massive hinderence....Gana can win the ball well enough but can't keep it whilst you just look like you're going thro the motions every game....happy to get paid for contributing NOTHING...!!!— Neil Vaughan (@vaughanieno10) August 4, 2018
If that's the best we have to offer with a week to go then I am very very worried about the fortcoming season....VERY WORRIED...!!!— Neil Vaughan (@vaughanieno10) August 4, 2018
You know when an opposition player makes a run passed you, it might be an idea to track him back. Just a thought. Oh, and also, can you please ask the centre backs to attack crosses and not cover their eyes and quiver. TB. X— Gra (@graemeedwards79) August 4, 2018
Pass the ball forwards more please.— Pure Toffee (@GuyanMatt) August 4, 2018

Banter from Mo here is outrageous.— Andy (@ABLE1986) August 4, 2018
Whether Schneiderin will start alongside Idrissa Gueye in Everton’s opening game remains to be seen.
The Frenchman was out of sorts last season, but Silva seems to be willing to offer him another chance to salvage his career at Goodison Park.
