Speaking exclusively to Football FanCast, former Everton defender Michael Ball believes Farhad Moshiri needs to take responsibility for where the Toffees are right now.
Despite bringing in some big signings last summer, most notably James Rodriguez, Everton once again failed to make that next step and qualify for Europe.
Since then, they have lost Carlo Ancelotti to Real Madrid and looked at various managers during their search for a successor.
Ultimately, it has all got a bit too messy for Ball, who has pointed the finger at the club owner.
“Moshiri, yes, he’s ploughed a lot of money into the football club,” the ex-Everton full-back said. “But I think he’s only got himself to blame, the money he has squandered on players that he wanted and managers he’s actually appointed.
“It hasn’t worked, so why not trust your technical director, your sporting director who you brought to the football club to improve us.”
Indeed, there has been a bit of disarray at Everton at times during Moshiri’s reign, especially now.
With that being said, the madness of late is largely due to Ancelotti’s shock exit, which Moshiri and most people probably did not see coming.
It sets the club up for an interesting season, a season where Ancelotti’s successor will be hoping to overtake the likes of Tottenham, Leicester City and West Ham, who all grabbed European spots ahead of Everton.
