Everton midfielder was the victim of a sudden attack in the Liverpool club. In the video clearly visible how man punches 23 y.o. player and knocks him out.
Barkley wasn’t injured after the incident, but it happened right after Everton v Leicester game. Match ended with 4-2 due to Everton and while celebrating the victory the main player got hit.
Everton officials didn’t give commentaries about the incident. But lawyer Matt Himsworth said: “Ross was the victim of an unprovoked strike by a stranger. He approached the player on Sunday eve and suddenly hit him in the face”.
After all, can assume that Barkley accidentally run into Leicester’s upset fan. There is no reason to assume that Ross somehow provoked the man. Fortunately player got only a little bruise and spoiled humor.
Barkley joined Everton since he was 11. He made 173 appearances for the club and played 22 times in England squad. His contract expires at the end of the season and Barkley will be sold if he refuses to sign a new one.
