Richard Keys demands Farhad Moshiri apology if Everton sack Rafa Benitez after Liverpool clash

Richard Keys is adamant Rafa Benitez should be sacked as Everton manager if they lose the first Merseyside derby of the season to Liverpool.

The Reds make the short trip to Goodison Park tonight (1 December) with Benitez under pressure after a run of seven winless games.

Ahead of Wednesday’s clash, beIN SPORTS broadcaster Keys suggests Benitez should feel the burn if the Blues are beaten by Jurgen Klopp’s side.

He also wants Everton majority owner Farhad Moshiri to say sorry to the supporters if it happens.

“As I said in this weeks blog – if Everton lose tonight Benitez should be sacked & Moshiri apologise to their magnificent fans for a massive misjudgement,” Keys wrote via his personal Twitter profile.

Moshiri madness

The last few weeks have summed up Moshiri’s reign at Goodison Park.

Since he arrived in 2016, he has presided over a pathetic period of the club’s history where they have made little to no progress on the field.

The new stadium is en route, and that may be the only tangible success of his legacy at Everton.

Every other decision looks to have been disastrous.

Steven Walsh has been and gone as director of football while his replacement, Marcel Brands, has also failed to deliver a competitive squad.

Moshiri has also gone through his fair share of managers, with Benitez just the latest unpopular appointment in a long line that also includes Sam Allardyce.

Blues are at breaking point, and they will need a whole lot of convincing by Moshiri if they are to stay on side.

As it currently stands, the ineptitude of the Blues board has been laid bare and how the club can recover in order to compete is anyone’s guess.
