[Just hours before Italy’s must-win meeting with Belgium in Reggio Emilia, Moise Kean posted a video on Instagram] Tell me where and when, tonight I won’t arrive late, and I have no more stupid excuses, even the traffic doesn’t matter

[Moise Kean’s father, Jean Biorou Kean, has opened up on his son’s future with Juventus, saying his son is happy in Turin but would one day consider a move to Inter Milan, the club the forward supported as a child] Maybe next week I can tell you more [about Moise’s future]. He is happy with where he is playing for Juventus and if the club decided to keep him, he’ll stay, otherwise, if they think of selling him and he wants to go to Inter we’ll see what happens, if they call him, he’ll think about it. My child was a fan of Inter as a child.
[The younger Kean caused controversy at the recent European Under-21 championships after he and Nicolo Zaniolo were suspended by head coach Gigi di Biagio after arriving late for a team meeting] On this I agree. A coach is also an educator and an educator is also a father of a team. Di Biagio did very well and is right to have done what he did. So next time my son knows that certain things should not be done and he sees it as point of reference. In Di Biagio’s position I would have done even worse than he did, so he really learns his lesson
[Kean has already drawn comparisons to Mario Balotelli in his young career] He must grow a lot more mentally. If you are strong and don’t have a head it’s all wrong. It all starts from the head. At first I told my son not to do like Balotelli. He must imitate Cristiano Ronaldo or Lionel Messi, not Balotelli.

[Moise Kean’s father has said that he stopped his son from joining Manchester United several years ago] I did stop his transfer at the time, his mother wanted to send him to Manchester United. I said no because I wanted him to stay at Juventus and keep learning. He was not mature enough yet. To send a young boy abroad aged just 14-15 years old didn’t convince me at that time
[Kean’s father, who was born in the Ivory Coast, believes his son has what it takes to be a success in the Premier League] I completely trust my son, he will make a big impact in English football with his new team. He is someone who brings joy wherever he plays. I’m sure my son will not look bad in England. He will make our family, Italy and Ivory Coast proud

[Everton have confirmed the capture of highly rated Juventus teenager Moise Kean in a deal worth an initial €27.5 million] I am very proud and honoured to wear the Everton shirt. I will give my best to this team. I was convinced to sign because Everton is a club looking to the future and so am I. I know about the size of the Club. It has big ambition and I will work very hard to help us fulfil what we want to achieve. I am used to winning and I want to bring this winning attitude to the team. I hope I will be very good on the field and bring the fans joy.

[Cristiano Ronaldo urged Moise Kean to follow his dreams after the teenage star decided to swap Juventus for Everton earlier this month] I like the Premier League and I followed it a lot. I also spoke to my companions at Juventus. I spoke to Cristiano….he told me to follow my dreams and work hard. I like Everton. This is the reason I came here. I recognise myself in this team. Everton are looking ahead to the future and so am I.
[While Everton finished the last Premier League season in eighth, their new teenage star has declared his desire to book the Toffees’ place in the Champions League] It is part of the ambition of any player to help bring his team to the Champions League. Champions League is fascinating and exciting. What I want is to bring Everton into the Champions League. I feel ready. I have always had to take big responsibility because of my age. I always played football with older boys when I was growing up and that made me stronger. It probably made me what I am now
[Kean’s breakout season in Italy wasn’t all smooth sailing with the teenager subject to racist abuse during a match against Cagliari in April] We have to fight against racism, everybody knows that, and the club was very helpful to me in that situation. I was concentrating strongly on playing to the best of my ability so that I could repay Juventus for the support they gave me

[Kean’s father wants AS Roma move for Everton striker] Sending my son to England was a mistake, because he’s still too young. He’s not feeling good at Everton, I didn’t like this transfer. I hope he can come back to Italy as soon as possible, I hope he goes to Rome, but the important thing is that he comes back here. I don’t have a relationship with Raiola, I have never met him, I don’t think he even wants to see me. He demanded my son’s power of attorney when he was 14 and together with my ex-wife he wanted to take him to England.
At Everton, where he is playing now, he is not settling in well. I think he was supposed to wait a few more years before he had an experience abroad. If there is a possibility for him to come back to Italy, I hope he can do that, so as not to ruin him

[The father of Everton forward Moise Kean says that he is still owed two tractors by Juventus from the deal made to sign the Italy international as a 14-year-old over half-a-decade ago] The story of the tractors? I believe in God and I believe in promises. But if their word was a lie I can’t trust them anymore. They promised me two tractors and they still haven’t been given to me
[The saga of Kean Sr’s pursuit of his tractors has been a long-running saga for the estranged father] I told [Juve] that I would keep him in Italy, but in return I wanted two tractors. The club told me there wouldn’t be any problem, but they have still not given them to me and they don’t even give me tickets anymore. But I want him to stay at Juve forever. Juventus are in my blood. I sent him to Juventus because I’m a Bianconeri fan

[Kean then subsequently addressed his father’s claims on tracktor in an Instagram story] Tractors???! I don’t know what you’re talking about
