Brands won’t make transfer decisions alone

New Everton Director Marcel Brands is excited for the future at Everton and believes his partnership with new Everton manager Marco Silva will prove successful.

The Dutchman has stressed however that he won’t be making transfer decisions alone and in 20 years he always uses the teams experience to make the right choice.

“I have never taken a transfer decision in 20 years as a football director on my own. I always do it with the coach and I always do it with my staff and the scouts, because I think it is important that scouts are involved in every new player that comes in.

“That keeps them hard working, that keeps them motivated but I also always want to see the new players that come in.

“In the past 20 years, sometimes it is very difficult and it is very busy and it makes for crazy weeks, but I want to see them all before they come in because we spend a lot of money and there is a lot of money going on in English football and, of course, we have to spend the money we have in the right way.

Have you been impressed with Brands since the club appointed him?
