While Liverpool look to be stuck with George Gillett and Tom Hicks at the helm for the foreseeable future, the same appears to apply at Goodison Park, despite rumours that a sale at Goodison Park was imminent. Supporters have clearly become disgruntled with the current board, especially due to a perceived reluctance to give manager David Moyes more spending power, yet it doesn’t appear that the are going anywhere in a hurry.
Sky Sports reports that the club have dismissed speculation surrounding a potential sale, although then again, Mike Ashley did the same at Newcastle and look what has happened there! Nevertheless, it appears as though Everton will not change ownership in the near future, especially when you consider the current financial climate with share prices dropping significantly every day.
“Contrary to this afternoon’s media reports, the club is not on the verge of being sold,” said a spokesman on the club’s official website.
“Mr Kenwright spent this afternoon in his London office.”
Kenwright stated last month that he was actively looking for new investment to support manager David Moyes’ team-building plans.
He added that he would consider selling the club – but only to the right investor.
Everton fans, are the club crying out for new investment, to avoid being left behind in the Premier League? After all, while it was a minor miracle that the Toffees managed to finish fifth last season, it looks like being a struggle this term, with many fans pointing to the lack of quality players that the club have signed.
