This is a brilliant prank phone call that went off to a ‘t’.
A couple of Evertonian pranksters got hold of Everton chairman Bill Kenwright’s phone number, and decided to ring him up pretending to be Ross Barkley.
Asking for a transfer request.
It must have been done back in early July, as Barkley committed his future to Everton last week.
When the guy gets through to Kenwright, he puts on a strong Scouse drawl, and says ‘Alright mate. Look I don’t wanna progress with my career with Everton any more.
The Everton chairman falls for the prank hook, line and sinker, and still doesn’t catch on when ‘Barkley’ asks him, ‘Are you goin’ for a spot on Corrie are ya?’
(Kenwright appeared on Coronation Street back in his acting days.)
Poor Bill must have got the fright of his life!
