Simon Jordan: Managers don't trust this Everton player after latest snub
By Amir Mir
Simon Jordan believes Everton ace Ross Barkley is not trusted by managers hence why he was snubbed by England once again over the international break.
The 23-year-old watched on from the bench as Gareth Southgate’s side suffered a 1-0 friendly defeat in Germany before beating minnows Lithuania 2-0 in a World Cup qualifier on home soil.
Barkley recently returned to the national set-up after being left out of recent squads following the humiliating exit from Euro 2016.
During that tournament, Barkley was not used by then England manager Roy Hodgson and former Crystal Palace chairman has given a reason as to why he keeps getting snubbed.

“Four managers have had the same conclusion at one time, maybe they don’t trust him,” Jordan wrote on his personal Twitter account.

Playmaker Barkley has produced indifferent performances for the Toffees over the course of the season but he has been a regular feature for manager Ronald Koeman.
At the start of the campaign, the Dutchman dropped the highly-rated midfielder on a number of occasions after criticising his performances in public.
However, since the turn of the year, he has turned his form around which helped him earn a recall to the England squad.
Barkley has played 27 Premier League matches this term, scoring four goals and supplying seven assists during that period.
Furthermore, since the start of January, he has played ten matches in the league, scoring on one occasion and providing five assists.
