Moise Kean has hit back at his father who claimed the striker's transfer to Everton was a "mistake".
Kean moved to Goodison Park in a transfer worth £27 million, but his father Jean reckons the 19-year-old is not happy with life in England and wants him to return to Italy as soon as possible.
But the Italy under-21 international has since responded to his claim in a defiant post on social media.
"Do not talk about my life when yours is not an example. I don't fear the hard times, the best is from there. Thanks," he wrote on Instagram story.
Kean has struggled for game time under Marco Silva and has yet to score for Everton since his summer switch.
Jean has also slammed his son's agent Mino Raiola, saying: "I don't have a relationship with Raiola, I have never met him, I don't think he even wants to see me.
"He demanded my son's power of attorney when he was 14 and together with my ex-wife he wanted to take him to England.
"At Everton, where he is playing now, he is not settling in well. I think he was supposed to wait a few more years before he had an experience abroad.
"If there is a possibility for him to come back to Italy, I hope he can do that, so as not to ruin him."
Everton currently sit 15th in the Premier League with 14 points, but just five points behind fifth-place Sheffield United who occupy the last European spot.
The Toffees resume their league campaign against Norwich City following the international break.
Will Kean break his scoring duck next Saturday?
