‘Never’: Everton board insists there’s something Alisher Usmanov has not done at Goodison Park

The UNBELIEVABLE Rise And FALL Of Southampton.

There have been claims that Alisher Usmanov has been in meetings with Everton managers before, as reported by The Guardian . But in a recent interview with Everton’s FAB (Fan Advisory Board) those claims have been shut down.

On Monday evening, Everton’s fan advisory board released the Q&A that they held with Farhad Moshiri and some very interesting questions and answers have come to light, especially about the ownership of our club and Alisher Usmanov’s involvement.

Alisher Usmanov’s name has been thrown around a lot when it comes to Everton, especially when it comes to the hiring of potential new managers and that question was asked.

‘Is it true that Mr Usmanov was present during interviews with potential new managers?’

“Mr Usmanov has never interviewed potential managerial candidates for Everton Football Club – or candidates for any other position within the Club.”

Notice how the answer was worded he ‘has never interviewed’ a potential manager. The reason that is, is because it has been widely reported by multiple news outlets that he has been part of the interview process.

In March of last year, The Mirror reported that Usmanov did pose a question to former manager Frank Lampard during his interview process, which has been denied by Everton who claim that he was only on a call with Farhad Moshiri.

However, in The Guardian, they claim to have spoken to a series of sources who said they were left with the impression Usmanov owned Everton. They all spoke on the condition of anonymity.

Has Moshiri finally answered the Usmanov manager question at Everton?

Last year all ties with Alisher Usmanov were cut following Russia’s invasion of Ukraine resulting in Everton’s training ground complex losing its sponsorship deal with USM Holdings and Everton women’s team losing their shirt sponsor MegaFon which is owned by USM Holdings.

Questions will continue to be asked regarding Usmanov’s involvement at the club, but as it stands they are denying everything about Usmanov being the real owner of Everton Football Club.
