English club Everton have released a statement saying they were appalled after images emerged appearing to show striker Moise Kean at a house party.
The Daily Star Sunday reported that the Italian player filmed himself at the party in his apartment.
Everton said they were shocked to learn of an incident in which their first-team player ignored government guidance and club policy in relation to the coronavirus crisis.
The club has strongly expressed its disappointment in the player.
In a statement, Everton added: “Everton has regularly stressed the importance of following all the government guidelines – including rules and advice for inside and outside of the home – through a series of official communications to all staff members, including players.
“The amazing people in the NHS deserve the utmost respect for their hard work and sacrifice. The best way to show them respect is by doing everything we can to protect them.”
The 20-year-old, who joined Everton from Italian champions Juventus in June last year, is the latest Premier League player to breach the lockdown guidelines.
