Sylvain Distin off to Bournemouth
6 long years have passed since Sylvain Distin put pen to paper on a contract to sign for the royal blues. During his stay he has always looked reliable and resilient at the back for Everton. However, 2014-15 was a season which didn’t start well for him, and a reported row between the manager and Sylvain Distin marked the end of his Everton stay in the first XI.
After a reported quarrel with Roberto Martinez, Sylvain Distin was shut out of the first team squad, which brought him to the decision that it was time to move on…but after half a season in the shadows he did get a chance to make a final appearance for Everton.
Sylvain Distin didn’t take too long to find another Premier League team that were willing to give him a new contract. Enter AFC Bournemouth…in the Premier League, and for what will be a terrific experience for them as a club, and Distin, as a footballer.
Most Everton fans wish the veteran defender good luck.
