Chris Sutton feels that after what occurred on Saturday, the £15 million Everton flop should give up football.

Everton’s dire financial situation is primarily the result of their poor transfer market decision-making; they paid exorbitant fees to appoint incompetent managers and then blindly supported them until their eventual termination.

It is a vicious cycle that Farhad Moshiri has forged at Goodison Park, and one that Sean Dyche will hope to beat by cementing his place in the dugout and overcoming the reported FFP sanctions.

The former Burnley player will need time to accomplish this, not only to instill his philosophy within the team, but also to change the market by removing players who he believes are unfit for his strategy.

During his first window in charge last summer, he quickly dismissed Neal Maupay, a player he was more than happy to let go on loan to Brentford in order to make room for the imposing Beto to support Dominic Calvert-Lewin.

With a very clear game plan, of which the 5 foot 8 Frenchman does not fit, the profligate flop was a welcome exit from a fanbase that had seen him struggle all year since first making his £15m switch.

However, it seems things are no better at the Gtech Community Stadium, with Chris Sutton lambasting the 27-year-old after failing to score on Saturday in his side’s clash with Chelsea.

After Robert Sanchez went up for a corner and the former Celtic star failed to pass the ball into an empty net, he told 5 Live Sport, “If I was Neal Maupay, I tell you, I would retire.” Come on, please. The Spanish shot-stopper would poke the ball free of the striker, only for Bryan Mbuemo to instead score.
