PA 18535581 Everton Balls: Ross Barkley Is Better Than Rooney And Any Player Who Has Ever Played For Liverpool

 

ROSS Barkley is in the England World Cup squad. What can we expect to see from the Everton midfielder? That question to you Chris Bascombe in the Daily Telegraph, who replies:

‘The 20-year-old is routinely described as potentially the finest footballer to emerge through Merseyside’s junior ranks, a freakishly talented hybrid of those who came before. At his best, he possesses the dynamism of Wayne Rooney, the burst of pace of a young Michael Owen, a left foot like Robbie Fowler, right of Steven Gerrard and close control of Steve McManaman.”

No pressure, Ross… No pressure at all…

PS: as Roy Hodgson said: “I would hope people will temper their expectations of him. I wouldn’t want him to be under the pressure that every time he gets the ball he has to score a goal like the one he did against Manchester City, or dribble 40 yards past five defenders.”
