Jordan Pickford Hits Back At Fan Who Asked If Everton Are Getting Relegated

Everton goalkeeper Jordan Pickford has been praised for the way he responded to relegation taunts from a fan during this weekend's Khan vs Brook event in Manchester.

It has been an extremely disappointing campaign for the Toffees and well, things didn't get any better on Saturday afternoon.

Frank Lampard's side suffered their 13th defeat of the season at Southampton after goals from Stuart Armstrong and Shane Long sealed a deserved win for the Saints.

Everton now sit 16th place in the Premier League ladder, just four points above the relegation zone.

And one Liverpool fan at the AO Arena in Manchester decided to try and wind up Pickford ahead of Saturday's fight between Amir Khan and Kell Brook.

The man behind the camera can be heard saying: “Yes Jordan! Everton getting relegated or what?” as he walked next to a friend.

Pickford then asked the fan to repeat himself twice more before replying back: “Parrot.” - a moment that has gone viral online.

The Daily Mail claim the fan was then heard saying: "Liverpool are winning the league!" as the England shot-stopper walked away.

The Everton number one has been in the headlines of late for his alleged actions off the pitch.

According to reports, he is said to be at the centre of a police investigation after a brawl broke out at a pub in South Tyneside on Sunday.

The Sun claim that Pickford was with friends at the Beggar's Bridge pub at East Boldon, when he was mocked for having 'little arms' by another group.

Pickford's friends were said to be 'furious' and a fight broke out, with one man left with a broken nose and another with a smashed phone after filming the scene.

Police were called to the pub around 9pm on Sunday but Pickford and his friends had already left.

There is no suggestion that the Everton goalkeeper assaulted anyone during the incident.
