Everton striker Dominic Calvert-Lewin has been out of action for several weeks now owing to a quadriceps injury and reports suggest that this shall persist for several more weeks to come.
But the English international still managed to make headlines, albeit with his appearance on Monday Night Football, as Everton took on Wolves at the Molineux Stadium.
The outing wasn’t an easy one for either DCL or Everton as the Toffees were handed a 2-1 defeat by the hosts and the performance was left to be analyzed by the Calvert-Lewin himself.
His on-screen presence, however, was anything but forgettable, as the 24-year-old was seen sporting a “1970-style” checked coat which managed to elicit quite a reaction from football enthusiasts.
The opinions were divided on this seemingly unorthodox attire.
While one section of fans felt that it was a bold but fine fashion choice by the striker, others took jibes at it deeming it to be the “worst thing about Everton” on the match-day.
Some felt that the star forward had apparently forgotten that it wasn’t Halloween day. One of the users managed to find the cost of the suit, and it was a lot pricier (£3250) than one would imagine.
Bizarre fashion choices aside, the general consensus was that DCL was very apropos with the analysis of his side.
Given how tough it could be to have to critique one’s own club’s performance, he handled the situation with great maturity which was recognized by not only the listeners but host Jamie Carragher himself who took to Twitter to voice his appreciation.
However given their team’s injury-plagued and a less-than-convincing season so far, Everton enthusiasts have more pressing issues to ponder over for their side which is clinging on to the number 10 spot on the league table.
