Joleon Lescott has again managed to avoid the wrath of the Everton supporters after he was ruled out for four to six weeks through injury, meaning the Everton fans will have to wait until next season to give him some verbal abuse.
The City defender was the subject of a summer long chase by former manager Mark Hughes, a pursuit that David Moyes wasn’t happy with and labelled ‘disgusting.’ The Everton manager also took the opportunity to show his anger at the deal in his program notes before City’s 2-0 defeat in January.
Lescott also missed that game as he had been ruled out through injury and is yet to face his former club and their supporters. Moyes later stated that the victory was made ‘sweeter’ because of the transfer saga.
But with that reprieve comes the possibility that Lescott could miss out on a place with England’s provisional World Cup Squad, which is named on 16th May and if the defender takes the full six weeks to recover, it will mean a race against time to get fit and match experience prior to Capello naming his squad.
