I'm not being facetious here but have you ever met a teenage professional footballer?
As soon as there is a sniff of the first team - long before a contract is even an option - they are pampered beyond belief. Everton's policy is that, because they can't offer 16 year old's bags of money, they tell them that if there is anything they want, they ask for it and it arrives. That often goes for the parents too.
Now lash into the mix a 19 year old boy who is probably living away from home for the first time, who has just been signed from the Champions of his home country, for a hefty fee, to play in the Premier League.
Guidance from an older team-mate is - quite simply - a MUST. Leaving players like Moise Kean to be late for training is exactly how George Green's career and mental health went the way they did.
Mentor, chaperone, and harass. Keep this kid on the straight and narrow and for fuck sake don't hang him out to dry in the media for being late twice in 3 months.
To be honest I wasn't specifically refering to Kean. I was just relating that in my thirty odd years of working life I have found that it's mostly the same people that are bad time keepers yet it's such a basic thing for anyone to manage.
There is no excuse for continual lateness. And if you're doing a job you are supposed to love it's even harder to.justify.
Being on time is not beyond a 19 year old and it's expected of every employee in every walk of life.
