EVERTON GOALKEEPER JORDAN Pickford says he gets “hurt” by the criticism he receives and feels hated because he is an England player.
The shot stopper made headlines again for a blunder that allowed Crystal Palace to equalise against Everton in Saturday’s Premier League match.
The Toffees went on to win 3-1, but Pickford admitted his disappointment after the game, describing the error as “disgusting”.
Pickford, 25, has been criticised for high-profile mistakes since he impressed at the last World Cup with England.
And the shot stopper says it feels like fans and the media hate Three Lions players, calling out Sky Sports pundit Gary Neville for some of his comments.
“I think the press and everybody, the punters – look at Gary Neville – they just want to come for England players,” he said.
