The Toffees have announced a new majority shareholder.
Indeed, the Iranian billionaire has bought a 49.9% stake in the Merseyside club, according to BBC Sport.
And Southall feels the sale is good news. Initially, he erred on Twitter, believing Everton still have the same owner. But, after being corrected by followers, he acknowledge the mistake:
Good news about investment wish it was 51% though still same owner— Neville Southall (@NevilleSouthall) February 27, 2016
So I am wrong a new owner— Neville Southall (@NevilleSouthall) February 27, 2016
And Southall went on to make an emphatic statement about where Everton should be headed.
The former goalkeeper feels there is a need to 'get rid' of anyone who is not in the hunt for success. At the same time, though, Southall wants a humble owner who will put fans first.
Need to get rid of everyone at club who does not have any ambition to win everything every year for ever but be also humble & puts fans 1st— Neville Southall (@NevilleSouthall) February 27, 2016
Everton are not in action this weekend but do travel to Aston Villa on Tuesday night, where the hope will be another win for Roberto Martinez's men. Anything other than that would come as quite a shock - for both sets of fans!
