Everton boss Koeman snappy over Barkley questions

Everton boss Ronald Koeman is fed-up with the focus on Ross Barkley.

The Blues lost 1-0 at Bournemouth thanks to Junior Stanislas' 23rd minute strike, with Barkley one of several disappointing performers in the Everton side at the Vitality stadium.

Asked afterwards for his thoughts on the England international's contribution, Koeman said: "I don't answer that question.

"Why? Because why do I need to explain or always talk about one or two players. You don't ask me about Coleman… What I don't like is that every game I need to explain the performance of Barkley.

"Every week I get that type of question."
