Mega financial syringe for FC Everton
The Premier League Club FC Everton receives urgently needed financial support. Owner Farhad Moshiri places another 100 million pounds (almost 120 million euros) in the club as the football club from Liverpool announced.
With the money, the English first division wants to compensate for losses through the Corona Pandemic. In addition, the money should be financed with the money for the relegation battle and the construction of the new stadium will be promoted. In the past three financial years, Everton made a total of 265 million pounds minus.
With the investment, which is the conversion of a loan to equity, Moshiri stops its share to 94.1 percent. The step is a clear proof of his commitment and determination, he wrote in a letter to the followers. The Iranian businessman had taken the blues in 2016 for 200 million pounds and has since spent about half a billion pounds for new arrivals. Nevertheless, Everton is currently stuck in the table cellar.
Movement on the coach bank
Recently, the club released his coach Rafael Benitez after only seven months. As the Daily Mail reported, four coaches are talking as a successor. In addition, Niko Kovac, once a Bundesliga trainer at Eintracht Frankfurt and Bayern Munich, who had to go to the turn of the New Year in the French first division AS Monaco. The Kroats have only outsider opportunities.
Topfavorite is the Belgian national coach Roberto Martinez, who has already worked successfully from 2013 to 2016 in Everton. Also on the list of candidates: England's ex-national player Wayne Rooney, currently coach of the second division Derby County, as well as the Frank Lampard released a year ago at FC Chelsea.
