Former Everton star Michael Ball insists that Farhad Moshiri’s strategy of changing managers routinely has not worked at Goodison Park.
Moshiri became the club’s majority shareholder in 2016, and since then, the Toffees have gone through a number of managers.
Roberto Martinez became the first manager to be sacked by Moshiri, back in 2016, and since then, the club have had four permanent managers: Ronald Koeman, Sam Allardyce, Marco Silva and Carlo Ancelotti.
Should Everton appoint Rafael Benitez?
Everton have also had four caretaker managers, with David Unsworth twice taking the reins, along with Joe Royle and Duncan Ferguson.
Ball believes that such a strategy has roundly failed for the Toffees, with the club still on the lookout for Ancelotti’s replacement amid links with former Liverpool manager Rafael Benitez.
Indeed, since 2016, Everton have finished seventh, eighth, twice, 12th and 10th, meaning there have been some truly underwhelming campaigns at Goodison Park.
Speaking exclusively to The Transfer Tavern, Ball said: “The fans do like Moshiri because of what he’s bringing to the club with the new ground and he’s putting a lot of wealth into the club and trying to improve us, and it’s just not working.
“But he’s still funding it. But he needs to realise moving forward that we don’t like chopping and changing managers. We’ve had five managers in five years and it’s not successful enough, we’re not winning things, it’s not working.”
