Josh King barely got any playing time under Carlo Ancelotti, and the striker has said that he felt lied to by the manager who had promised him playing time, which is why he joined the Blues. [Dagbladet]
“I did not get the chance, not a single start. Had I got a start and not performed, I would have understood it.
“I had another offer that gave much more security, but was told that I would get to play and that I would get the chance at Everton. But it was not delivered, so then I feel that was not the intention, just.
“Do not trust coaches who promise you things and say you will get the chance, that you will start.”
“That’s how the football world is. This is how it is when you get to the top of the real world. That’s the way it is. But no, I do not regret that I went there [Everton]. But yes, he lied to me. But again; There are not many honest people who work in football. Except for the players, then. I had no relationship with Ancelotti.
