Artur Boruc has accused Ronald Koeman of hypocrisy after quitting Southampton to join Everton in a reported double-your-money deal.
The Merseysiders announced on Tuesday that the Dutchman is the club’s new manager after signing a three-year contract.
Koeman, who had one year left on his contract at Southampton, replaces Roberto Martinez, who was sacked last month.
Sky Sports have claimed that the former Holland defender is set to earn £6million-a-year at Goodison and will be handed a club record transfer kitty, which is set to exceed £100million.
Following confirmation that Koeman had quit Southampton for Everton, former Southampton goalkeeper Boruc uploaded a photo of the 53-year-old on his Twitter page accompanied by a quote from the manager in March of this year questioning players and managers who left their teams for more money.

Southampton fans have become increasingly disgruntled over the manner of Koeman’s exit, particularly after the quote present in Boruc’s picture filtered out over the last few weeks.
Boruc, 36, was offloaded to Southampton’s rivals Bournemouth by Koeman in 2014, before the loan turned permanent when the Cherries were promoted to the Premier League 12 months later.
