Everton boss blames photographer for Lennon misery

Roberto Martinez has joked he will chase the club photographer for making new signing Aaron Lennon look unhappy in recent photos.

The winger was mocked across social media for his glum expression in the shots, but the manager says the loanee is more than happy to be on Merseyside.

"He is very happy - I would blame the photographer because it is their job to make him produce a nice smile," Martinez quipped.

"But I saw a different face - a focused face, of someone who is ready to train and to perform.

"We are delighted, and I know there has been a lot said about the pictures - I will chase the photographer because I wasn't happy with that at all!"
