Robinson, who played with Keane at Burnley between 2015 and 2017, has claimed Frank Lampard “must answer” his defense in the next transfer window.
“Keane suffers from lack of concentration” he said Football Insiderit’s Dylan Childs.
“It happens way too often. This is not an isolated case. This is not a unique case.
“The central half area needs to be addressed at Everton. Lampard must have known he would have to watch him when he entered.
“There is a serious lack of leadership there. There are too many mistakes leading to goals for them. It is expensive for Everton. These are mistakes that could and should be stopped.
