The entire board and management of Everton have been instructed not to be present at Goodison Park today for the match against Southampton. The club, which has won nine titles in the English championship throughout its history, is facing a major crisis and is currently in the relegation zone.
The fans have been protesting for a long time and are dissatisfied with the way the leaders run the club. Everton is under pressure today to beat Southampton who are last in the table with only 12 points, three less than Everton.
Due to their own security, no member of the club’s management will watch this duel from the stands.
“Chairman Bill Kenwright, chief executive Denise Barrett-Bahendale, chief financial officer and chief strategy officer Grant Eagles and non-executive director Graeme Sharpe reluctantly accepted the assessment of their safety. The members of the administration were also ordered not to come to the stadium, and this is due to frequent malicious threats sent to the address of the club, in which physical aggression is also mentioned,” reads Everton’s announcement, which emphasizes that “This is a sad day. for the club.”
