Rafa Benitez explains Everton transfer plans after Farhad Moshiri talks and Bill Kenwright visit
Rafa Benitez is certain to have the support of Farhad Moshiri and the Everton board as the club step up plans for the January transfer window.
President Bill Kenwright visited Benitez at Finch Farm on Wednesday to offer his support as the manager looks to end a six-game winless streak at Brentford this weekend.
The Blues boss says he chats with majority owner Moshiri, Kenwright and the other power brokers at Goodison several times a week – and a lot of talk lately has been about how they can improve the squad. in the winter market.
Benitez says expectations must remain ‘realistic’ after a summer where the club spent less than Â£ 2million trying to improve playing options and ahead of a January window where the money is, once again, expected to to be tight.
After the game with Brentford, Everton will face Liverpool, Arsenal, Crystal Palace, Chelsea and Leicester before Christmas.
But Benitez says Moshiri “knows” that it takes patience and that he still wants to be in charge of the club beyond the end of his current three-year contract.
