Everton Name New Manager
Everton Officials today announced the appointed of their new manager, 35 year old McDermott. The announcement came as a shock to everybody as the inexperienced Scot has only managed the youth teams at Everton. However, he has worked with Ross Barkley before in the under 19s team and is a popular figure at the Everton Training ground. McDermott will now look to prepare his side for a challenging Premier League season where European qualification is the goal.
The Everton board revealed that there is £10 million to spend on new players. Everton have already signed Irish international McGeady, and strikers Lukaku and Traore on a season long loan deal. McDermott did say he wanted to sign a midfielder to fill the void left by Fellaini. The question is, can McDermott lead Everton into Europe in his first season in management, many believe he cannot.
