Journalist Paul Brown has claimed that the silence from Everton owner Farhad Moshiri speaks volumes about how much he cares about the club.
Everton currently sit two places above the drop zone, but they have a chance to secure Premier League safety in their next game if they beat Crystal Palace tonight. The Toffees finished 10th last season, so this campaign has certainly been a disappointment for all involved at the club.
Moshiri has been the owner of Everton since 2016, but there have been reports questioning his future at the club after three United States-based tycoons are thought to be prepared to take over.
With the rumours that Moshiri may be heading towards the end of his reign, Brown spoke to GiveMeSport and highlighted that he could have spoken out at some point this season.
He said: “The only comments I’ve heard from Moshiri have been about how football swings from good to bad and he said we’re not in danger, basically, while Rafa was still there.
“It would be nice to hear from him, but his silence speaks volumes.”
Do you think Everton will get relegated?
TIF Thoughts on Brown’s comments…
Everton have struggled on and off the pitch this season, but after some important victories in their recent games against the likes of Chelsea and Leicester City, a win in either of their last two Premier League games will be enough to ensure top-flight status for next season.
With the poor season that the Toffees have had, the supporters may not feel confident in Moshiri leading them into a very important transfer window, especially if they stay up, as there needs to be investment made to ensure that they aren’t in a relegation scrap next season.
If Everton do get relegated, they may well see some of their key players leave the club, so either way, the summer could see a rebuild for the board at the club in terms of the playing squad.
