Klaassen takes fresh aim at 'hoof' Everton

Ajax midfelder Davy Klaassen has again taken aim at former club Everton.

The Dutch midfielder spent only one season at Goodison Park before leaving to sign for Werder Bremen and has previously spoken of his struggles during his spell with the Blues.

Klaassen has once again been sharing his experiences of life at Everton and admitted he found the club's 'hoof ball' style problematic.

Speaking with De Telegraaf, the 29-year-old said: "First of all, abroad, you don't have all your friends and family around you. To what extent soccer changes depends on club and league. At Everton, I really suffered from culture shock. If it's not going well there, they hoof the ball forward.

“Playing for prizes also brings a certain mentality. At Bayern Munich, where teammates (Gravenberch and Mazraoui) are linked to, it is comparable to Ajax, because here they also play for prizes with attacking, neat soccer."
