Everton training session
This season has turned out to be extremely difficult for the Toffees, they sacked Rafael Benitez and replaced with Frank Lampard in the manager’s chair, but they are still in 17th place and completely in danger of relegation. There are also problems off the pitch, with investor Alisher Usmanov being sanctioned by the British government.
The club’s major shareholder, Farhad Moshiri, is regularly criticized for spending money the wrong way and the transfer policy is what makes Carragher particularly confusing. He said: ” I think Everton is the worst performing club in the country, probably one of the worst in Europe. They certainly are. They have to be.”
“And it’s not just because they’ve spent a lot of money and it’s not productive – it’s happened before. Some of the things that Everton do, it’s just unbelievable. When you think about what they did last month. January – bring in two full-backs and fire the manager a week later.”
“That’s why they have five or six managers. I think any manager who goes to any club thinks he’s the guy who can turn things around. That’s why. “I fear for Frank [Lampard] a little bit, because Everton is not where you want to be as a manager right now. There’s so much going on, it’s an absolute mess.”
