‘There has got to be a reset’ – Conor Coady sends Everton boardroom new message after exit

In order to progress in the Premier League and eliminate the risk of relegation, Conor Coady believes Everton needs to make resolute and decisive decisions at the boardroom level, writes the GN.

Despite a final-day victory over Bournemouth that secured their 69-year stay in the English top flight, Sean Dyche’s team had to fend off the threat of dropping to the Championship.

During an appearance on the Monday Night Club, Coady, who is set to return to Wolves after completing a season-long loan spell at Goodison Park, emphasized the importance of having a clear direction moving forward at Everton.

He said: “What I really do believe is that it needs some really strong decisions from people upstairs, it needs some strong decisions from everybody to say ‘this is our direction and this is where we are going’.

“Because I believe, from being inside, that we lost our way an awful lot and the more we keep losing our way the harder it is going to be to get back up.

“At some point, there has got to be a reset with everything, but we didn’t want that reset to be getting relegated from the Premier League. “As a club, I think Everton, at this moment in time, have got to stop saying ‘right we have stayed up, it’s alright, so we’ll put a plaster on it’.

“I don’t think it can be that, I really don’t.

“You can’t take getting relegated as the reset that everybody needs.”
