Many Everton fans have been left reacting to the news that Ali Daei may be joining the Goodison Park faithful.
Will Everton win a trophy this season?
It was reported last month that the Merseyside club are interested in working with Daei, although it still remains unclear as to what kind of role he would be playing for the Toffees.
There is also a connection to Farhad Moshiri, who is Iranian himself, which could be a reason as to how and why Daei has been recruited by the Blues.
Nonetheless, the comments that he has made on the possibility of working with EFC should please supporters if he were to join the Everton family.
However, it has also left fans questioning as to why exactly he has been recruited and for what type of role.
Everton fan reaction to Daei news
These Everton fans gave some fairly mixed reaction to the news on Twitter, with one Toffee claiming that it ‘could be massive for the club’ if he joins:
“He’s massive over in Iran, could be massive for the club and grow a fan base over there”
“Brands still not offered a new deal, could this be the reason why?”
“Moshiri connection I guess”
“Would be good as a finishing coach. Like Dunc helps out with the physical side of a striker, and he does the actual finishing ability part”
“Moshiri’s getting the dough out and bringing in an experienced goal scorer and a legend to teach the young.”
