Supporters of Everton have been discussing Leon Osman after the Liverpool Echo shared an article with quotes from the former Toffees player.

To kick off this quiz of the goings-on with the Toffees last week, which Serie A goalkeeper was linked with a switch to the club?

Do you feel like Leon Osman and Tony Hibbert deserved better when they left Everton?

No, it wasn't that bad

Yes, was a bit classless

The reaction came after the retired midfielder explained that when he left Everton he was ‘sent a text telling him he would no longer be a Blues player’ (via Liverpool Echo).

The 38-year-old former Everton man went on to claim that he “would have liked to have had a nice match at Goodison” to say his goodbyes and was “hurt” for a little while by his departure (via Liverpool Echo), although some supporters were sure he did have a testimonial.

What do we think?

As some supporters suggested, the retired English midfielder did have a testimonial at Goodison Park, a 1-1 draw against Porto in 2014 (per BBC).

However, as he revealed in the interview that his time at the club came to an end after receiving a text over his future in the interview with the Sportsman, the handling of his departure still seems to have lacked class, which most fans recognised.
