Everton boss Ronald Koeman

Ronald Koeman vs Martin O’Neill war of words continues over night

Club vs country

The war of words between Republic of Ireland head coach Martin O’Neill and Everton manager Ronald Koeman continued over night.

The club vs. country row over Everton midfielder James McCarthy escalated on Friday evening when O’Neill released a rather catty statement in response to Koeman’s earlier comments.

In the statement, O’Neill referred to the Dutchman as the “master tactician of the blame game”.

What derby?

Koeman took to Twitter to respond to that jibe, tweeting the following:


While Koeman scored a few points against O’Neill for the tweet, some were confused by its timing.

The Toffees have their biggest match of the season on early on Saturday afternoon many feel that Koeman should’ve been concentrating solely on that.

Others are just enjoying the madness.
