Agent of Everton defender Keane hits out at 'crazy' England snub

The agent of Everton defender Michael Keane has hit out England coach Gareth Southgate over his selection snub.

Jake Mallen, who represents the ex-Manchester United and Burnley centre back, felt omitting Keane but including Tottenham's Eric Dier and Wolves captain Conor Coady was wrong.

Mallen initially quote-tweeted an article which reported Southgate saying he would not pick players based on reputation alongside two confused emojis.

In a follow up, the agent was asked what he thought of the squad.

He wrote: "Dier & Coady over Michael Keane. Crazy!"
