Everton fans have aired their frustration with their former director of football, Steve Walsh.

In a recent interview with The Athletic, Walsh explained that he had lined up deals for Harry Maguire, Andy Robertson, Erling Haaland and Jonny Evans, however, they were turned down by the Toffees (via Liverpool Echo).

Walsh was appointed by the Toffees as director of 2016 to work alongside Ronald at Goodison Park (per The Mirror).

With the move marking his first in a role of the kind, having previously been a scout, the spent £150 million on transfers and ended up in the Premier League relegation zone prior to his sacking (per Liverpool Echo).

The recent article had supporters reflecting on his appointment at Goodison Park, which led them to decide that he should never have been given a director of football role in the first place.

What do we think?

It is fair to say that the period under prior to Walsh’s sacking was a difficult one for the Merseyside club (per Liverpool Echo).

It is doubtless that the touted names by the former director of football in the interview would have made a difference, but the whole truth will potentially never be known.
