Sam Allardyce has told the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast, which was broadcast on TalkSPORT on 12th June, that the big question around Everton’s new stadium is whether they will have a team ready to play in it.
Everton want to move into a new ground, as Farhad Moshiri looks to improve the infrastructure at the club.
Everton are still in the early stages of planning their new ground, but there is hope that it could be built in that not too distant future.
And Allardyce claims that if Moshiri does build a new home for Everton then it will be a fantastic achievement.
He said: “The new stadium is going to be a fantastic achievement for Farhad, if they build it in the next four years, as that builds an expectation.
“There’s one thing for sure, Everton will be supported greatly, but without a team there is the big question. You must have a team that is going to perform in a stadium of that capacity and deliver.”
Everton have announce big ambitions for the upcoming years, but they have so far failed to deliver since Moshiri came in.
Although the Toffees have spent big on new players, Everton could only muster up a mid-table finish last term.
Everton have now appointed Marco Silva, in the hope that the Portuguese boss can improve on their fortunes.
Silva is expected to make wholesale changes to Everton’s squad over the coming months, to try and have them challenging for a European spot next term.
