Asmir Begovic thinks Everton’s problems stem from inconsistency on the board.
Speaking to talkSPORT, the goalkeeper discussed his time at Goodison Park and was critical of the ‘difficult’ issues within the club.
Begovic joined the Toffees on a free transfer in 2021 and went onto make only a handful of appearances before turning down a contract extension this summer.
The 36-year-old endured a tough time on Merseyside and was present for their consecutive relegation scraps, with both seasons full of protests and anger against the board from the fanbase.
Speaking on the club, Begovic said: “We obviously had some financial issues and a lot of inconsistency (with) people running the place so that makes it very difficult for the staff and the players.
“Certainly difficult. When I go back two years, people say: ‘Why in the world Everton?’

“It’s easy to say now but at the time, you were looking at a fantastic football club with a fantastic group of players.
“When you get in there, you realise there are bigger issues.”
Asmir Begovic is right – Everton need stabilising
While we don’t know exactly what goes on behind closed doors at Everton, they definitely need more consistency and a stable board if they are going to improve in every other aspect.
However, things could be on the up at Goodison Park, with recent reports from the Daily Mail claiming the Toffees had entered an exclusivity agreement with MSP Sports Capital ahead of a potential takeover.
Meanwhile, pundit Don Hutchinson has told ESPN that he believes Bill Kenwright could be another high-profile board member to quit in the very near future.
Everton supporters will be hoping this is a step in the right direction for the club, however it will take a long time for them to turn things around after a horrific few years.
