The British media’Guardian’ reported on the 24th (local time), “Everton owner Farhad Moshiri has a price tag of at least 500 million pounds (about 760.5 billion won).”
Everton is a prestigious English Premier League (EPL) tradition. But this season is very disappointing. After Rafael Benitez left, coach Frank Lampard took over the helm, but was eventually sacked after falling into a 10-game winless swamp. The traditional powerhouse that once dominated the EPL has now fallen to the relegation zone and is aiming to remain.
Here, Arnaut Danjuma, who was about to be recruited from Tottenham Hotspur, was hijacked and failed to reinforce his power. Also, the possibility of a key player, Anthony Gordon, going to Newcastle United has been raised. In the end, exhausted Everton owner Moshiri put Everton up for sale at a price of £500 million.
According to the report of ‘Guardian’, Moshiri wanted to recover the money invested in the new stadium under construction, and he was known to be frustrated at being the victim of sacking the manager and hijacking. The media commented, “Moshiri and the board team that assists him have received tremendous criticism from fans in recent weeks, and requests that Moshiri and the board team leave immediately are pouring in.” 메이저놀이터
Everton is a very attractive club for a chaebol who wants to take over an EPL club. Not only is it a traditional name, but the fans’ affection for the club is outstanding. They are also building a new stadium, so if they remain in the EPL this season, they have a bright future.
