Everton close to signing James Tarkowski as Moshiri apologises to fans

Goodison Park-Everton

James Tarkowski is set to leave Burnley at the end of the month. Everton are ready to embrace the defender after agreeing with personal terms with the Burnley star for a free signing. 

Meanwhile, following The Guardian, Everton club owner Farhad Moshiri has apologised to fans for mistakes made at Goodison Park regarding their disastrous 2021/22 season. Moshiri has invested heavily in the squad in recent times. Still, his decision making has been widely criticised, with the Toffees making a string of missteps in the transfer market and also quickly changing through managers. However, the British-Iranian businessman apologised for the club’s poor season and committed to delivering a new, fully-funded stadium over the coming years.

Speaking of the disastrous 2021/22 season, it was a miserable year for their supporters. 

“Mistakes have been made, and for that, I want to apologise to all of you,” Moshiri said in an open letter to supporters. “It has not been good enough, and we need to do better. We are committed to not making the same mistakes again, including how we have not always spent significant amounts of money wisely.

“You have given us incredible support that helped us over the line when we most needed it, and we must repay that support and show that lessons have been learnt.

“Whilst there is no denying that it was an amazing night when we turned around a 2-0 half-time deficit to secure a sensational victory and guarantee a 69th successive season in the top tier of English football last season, it should not be allowed to disguise the fact that we have underperformed in what proved to be a very challenging campaign. You did not deserve the frustration and fear that the season brought.”
