‘The club is a joke’ – Carragher blames one man for Everton ‘mess’

Jamie Carragher thinks Everton owner Farhad Moshiri is to blame for the current “mess” at the club with the team “getting worse”.

The Toffees secured their first win in nine Premier League outings as they came from a goal down to beat Arsenal 2-1 at Goodison Park on Monday night.

It comes after Marcel Brands left his role as director of football on Sunday night with Everton undergoing “a strategic review of the football structure”.

The Dutchman had been at Goodison Park since the summer of 2018 and was involved in the Toffees spending close to £300million during that period.

It failed to translate into on-field success, however, and Carragher has described Everton as a “joke” under Moshiri.

“The club is a joke right now,” Carragher said on Sky Sports’ Monday Night Football before their clash with Arsenal.

“If I go back to the David Moyes era, Everton had something about them. Yes they didn’t win a trophy, but there was a spirit about them, a fight, it was a tough place to go. They stood for something.

“Not long afterwards Moshiri came in, and because we couldn’t break that ceiling, because we didn’t have the money under David Moyes, to go that step further… Moshiri comes in and look how many managers he’s had in that time.

“If you count interims he’s had eight managers. He’s on his third director of football. The money spent is mind boggling and they’re getting worse.

“Under Moshiri they’ve signed 58 players. That’s why I talk about this club being a joke and a mess right now.”

Former Liverpool defender Carragher added: “At this moment on the board they’ve got Bill Kenwright and Denise Barrett-Baxendale, staunch Everton supporters who love the club.

“Then you’ve got the money guys in Moshiri and Alisher Usmanov in the background.

“There’s no way Bill Kenwright and Denise Barrett-Baxendale wanted Rafa anywhere near that club. But the problem we have is that because they’re not in control they’re terrified of going against Moshiri in any way, because he’s the guy with the money.

“He’s the one with who is going to produce that stadium. Without him there probably is no stadium.

“Decisions made by Moshiri are really poor. He hasn’t got a clue what he’s doing. Yes he’s got the money, but he’s got no football expertise at all.”
