Everton majority shareholder Farhad Moshiri has admitted to mistakes in regard to replacing John Stones, Ross Barkley and Romelu Lukaku following their departures from Goodison Park.
“The difficulty we’ve experienced is we lost three of our best players: John Stones, Ross Barkley and Romelu,” Moshiri is quoted by the Liverpool Echo as saying.
“They were young and on low wages and for us to lose Stones, you get £45m but he was on low wages. To replace him with a defender of that quality you need to pay him £200,000 a week. We didn’t do that.”
Learning from the past but looking ahead to the future, he added: “I think we’ve learnt, we’ve had bad luck, we’ve had poor judgement but I feel the business we did in the summer shows that we are in the right direction.”
