Exclusive: Barry Fry backs Everton to aim for top four consistently

Peterborough United Director of Football has told Football FanCast that Everton have set their sights on finishing in the top four continually.

The Toffees are flexing their muscles, as they have appointed Carlo Ancelotti as manager and are in the process of building a brand new stadium that will serve as a major upgrade on Goodison Park.

The club have enjoyed a promising season after making some statement moves in the transfer window, too, including the signing of James Rodriguez from Real Madrid.

Will Everton qualify for Europe?





Everton currently sit eighth in the Premier League but are just five points off the top four, and are also within touching distance of finishing above Liverpool, with whom they are level on points.

Fry has been impressed with the way Ancelotti has improved Everton and he believes that the club are aiming to become a top side within the Premier League, backing them to do so.

Speaking exclusively to FFC, he said: “They definitely want to get in the top four, they want to play in the best competitions in the world, there’s no doubt about that.

“So does the manager, so when the manager went there a lot of people went ‘why has he gone there, they don’t really have any ambition’, but I think they’ve shown they have with the progress of the new ground and he’s made them a better team.

“They’re a bit inconsistent, I think everybody in the country bar Manchester City is inconsistent, but they’re going to be a powerful club again, I’m sure of that.”
