Anthony Gordon, a former Everton winger, has defended his move to Newcastle United and dismissed reports of refusing to train at Finch Farm under the club’s new manager, Sean Dyche, writes the LiverpoolWorld.
The 22-year-old finalized his transfer to Newcastle United in the final days of the January window for £40m. He stated that the speculation was “misconstrued.”
While his reception at Goodison Park is yet to be seen, Gordon spoke in defense of the way he ended his 10-year tenure at Everton in Newcastle United’s matchday program before their game against Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday.
“Probably everything from the last year, I think!” said Gordon, when asked if he had ever read anything about himself in the media that wasn’t true. “I don’t blame the media because it can happen, and they can get fed from outside sources. But yeah, especially with how I got this move and stuff, a lot of that wasn’t true. It was misconstrued.
“A lot of media stuff is not true and it’s difficult at times being a player because you can’t affect public opinion but you learn to block it out and it doesn’t really affect me anymore.”
