Lescott hits back at Toffees

26 August 2009 12:43
New Manchester City signing Joleon Lescott has revealed he has been disappointed by "inaccurate" comments during his final days with Everton. The England defender joined City in a deal worth a reported £24million on Tuesday night to bring to an end a lengthy transfer pursuit for the Eastlands club. Lescott's days at Everton had looked numbered when he was dropped from the side for having a "poor attitude" according to Toffees boss David Moyes. Moyes also hit out at the conduct of City counterpart Mark Hughes during the protracted transfer saga. But speaking after being unveiled as City's latest big-money signing, Lescott admitted he was far from happy at the way his spell at Goodison Park ended. Lescott was dropped from the first team after Everton's season-opening 6-1 thrashing at the hands of Arsenal. "I was disappointed in the comments, I feel they're inaccurate," he said. "I'd like to address them at a later date and talk more positively about my move here. "I don't think I disrespected any of the players. If I did, I apologise."
