David Moyes delighted by Moshiri investment at Everton

The former Arsenal shareholder bought a stake in the club last month.

Former Everton manager David Moyes is hoping Farhad Moshiri’s investment at the club can see vast development at the club, he has told the Daily Mail.

The former Arsenal investor bought a 49.9% stake in the club last month, and has already vowed to invest in both the playing squad and seek to resolve their stadium issues.

Indeed, Goodison Park is certainly a big issue for the club, with many considering the old stadium as one of the main things currently holding their club back.

And Moyes is one of them, saying that development of the stadium in particular is key to their future.

“I’d just hope Everton, with the takeover, are now in a stronger position to fight for their players, and work really hard to keep them,” he told the Daily Mail.

“It’s been a long search for the right investor. Development is key. I was someone who always hoped Goodison could be developed and rebuilt.”

“If Everton are going to move to the next level it’s in those areas that they need to invest, because Everton should be a club that always challenges the top teams. If you look at them now they have some outstanding players.”

While the stadium is a big issue for Everton, keeping their players will be their main focus in the short term.

This summer in particular is likely to be a big one for them, with big clubs reportedly monitoring the likes of Romelu Lukaku and John Stones.

Keeping those players, as well as the likes of Gerard Deulofeu and Ross Barkley will be as important to their future as developing Goodison Park.
