Luke Garbutt was released by Everton after 11 years at the club – but current manager Carlo Ancelotti has absolutely no idea who he is.
The Toffees announced that the 27-year-old would leave following the end of his contract having spent the 2019/20 season on loan with Ipswich.
During a press conference, Ancelotti was left perplexed when asked by a journalist about the decision to release him.
His answer probably goes some way to show why the left-back was not offered a contract extension at Everton.
Garbutt has not played for the first team since 2015 and only made 12 total appearances for the club.
He spent much of his time in recent seasons out on loan at Fulham, Wigan, Oxford and most recently Ipswich.
Garbutt laughed off Ancelotti’s reaction on Twitter, saying: “Don’t get it twisted I chose to find the funny side other players would feel disrespected by the club and the manager.
“It’s not his [Ancelotti’s] fault it’s the club’s however it’s a belter though.”
Earlier in the day, he spoke about his time at Everton on Twitter and wished the club good luck for the future.
He said: “Today officially my contract at Everton has now expired after been at the club for 11 years!
“The club has been a huge part of my life, and one I had huge pride to represent. There’s been many ups and a few downs which I couldn’t control. Everton good luck for the future.”
