Everton boss Ronald Koeman makes a worrying admission

Everton manager Ronald Koeman has admitted that his club’s board are worried by their poor form this season.

The Toffees have been poor so far this term. Thursday’s Europa League defeat at the hands of Lyon means that they now have an improbable task to qualify from Group E of Europe’s second tier club competition.

They have also been underwhelming in the Premier League having only taken eight points from their opening eight games and could move into the relegation zone should they suffer another defeat when they play against Arsenal on Sunday.

Koeman has insisted that he still has backing from the club, however he did concede that worries are now being raised following the poor results.

When asked if he still has the backing of the club’s majority shareholder Farhad Moshiri, the Dutchman replied saying, “That’s not changed, of course, we have daily contact, weekly contact. But everybody is of course a little bit worried about the situation. That’s normal.”
