Everton boss Silva: Lookman knows why he was axed

Everton boss Marco Silva has called on Ademola Lookman to get his head down and prove himself.

It has been suggested Lookman is trying to force a move to RB Leipzig, where he enjoyed a loan spell last season.

“Lookman knows very well why he wasn't in the squad last week," said Silva. “It was a technical decision and he knows very well why. But I can tell you he has trained very well this week and responded how I wanted him to.

“Even if he's not really happy he has to be in the future and it is a matter of him fighting for what he wants in his career.

“In this moment he is our player, I am happy to keep him as our player, and now it is up to him to fight for his position, for a place in the starting XI and in our squad list as well."
