Welcome to the wiki of the Boss. This midfielder is an Everton boy through and through. He started at the Youth Academy of the Toffees in 2005 and later he went on to play a whopping 150 games for Everton Football Club. For years he had been followed by the biggest English clubs but he never made a transfer. Untill the summer of 2017 that is. That is when Chelsea Football Club bought the midfielder from Everton for roughly 17.5 Million Euro. He has often been compared to some legendary midfieldplayers. His former Everton manager Roberto Martinez said that he thinks that he is a mix of Paul Cascoigne and Michael Ballack. Roy Hodgson, former England manager always praised his pace and power and said that his technique was always "excellent". The biggest praise came perhaps from legendary midfielder Xavi, who said that Ross the Boss could probably play for FC Barcelona because of his physical and technical qualities. We don't know about Barcelona though, because he seems to be the type of player that really flourishes in the Premier League.
