Crewe Alexandra boss Dave Artell has promised his players will refund fans who travelled to Essex for Tuesday’s 6-0 defeat at Colchester.
The Railwaymen started their 2018-19 campaign with a 6-0 win at home to Morecambe, but that is their only success so far this season and Tuesday night proved a forgettable one for Artell’s side.
They conceded three goals in each half and Artell said their performance had been “utterly unacceptable” before putting the onus on his players to refund supporters.
EVERTON FC SET £28M PRICE TAG FOR WINGER ADEMOLA LOOKMAN
Everton are demanding £28m plus add-ons for Ademola Lookman to join RB Leipzig, according to Sky sources.
Sky Sports News reported on Monday that Leipzig had made a fresh £22m offer for the 20-year-old winger.
Leipzig, where Lookman impressed on loan last season, also saw a £12m offer rejected back in July.
The German side have remained keen to sign him before their August 31 transfer deadline, with manager Ralf Rangnick stating earlier this summer: “We want him back and he wants to come.”
Everton manager Marco Silva admitted last week that Lookman was unsettled but had trained well in the build-up to Saturday’s game against Southampton, where he was an unused substitute.
Silva is understood to have been impressed with the way Lookman handled being dropped altogether for the season opener against Wolves.
Silva has also said this summer that he wants to keep the player, that Lookman is the club’s “present and future”, and he was doing everything “to make him happy again”.
RB Leipzig head of recruitment Paul Mitchell – a potential candidate for Manchester United’s new technical director role – is thought to be a long-term admirer of Lookman, who joined Everton from Charlton Athletic.
