Everton Women expert reacts as Brian Sorensen is announced as incoming boss
We’re delighted to welcome Peter MacFarlane, member of the Everton Women Official Supporters Club, as our exclusive Everton Women expert.
Everton Women are set to appoint a new manager in Brian Sorensen and our expert Peter MacFarlane is hopeful based on his track record.
At the same time however he is at pains to express his appreciation for the man who will be replaced, Chris Roberts, for his service to the club during a trying time.
The interim boss stepped in unexpectedly and provided some much-needed stability, but in a disappointing season all round he never expected to remain in the role full time.
MacFarlane spoke exclusively to Goodison News about the development, saying: “Looking ahead to next season it was announced this week that Danish manager Brian Sorensen will take over the reigns at the end of the season.
“Brian has a very good track record during his time in Denmark, winning two league titles and the Danish Cup with his current side Fortuna Hjorring, along with two more Cup wins at IK Skovbakken and FC Nordsjaelland.
“It’s certainly an interesting appointment and from everything I’ve read about Sorenson he is an expert at developing youth and creating harmony within a squad, which is something that Everton need more than ever after such a confidence sapping season.
“We all wish Brian the best and can’t wait to see him get started. This also means that Chris Roberts will take charge for the remaining games, and it’s an opportunity for us fans to show him our thanks for stepping up and steadying the ship after the disastrous tenure of previous manager Jean Luc Vasseur.
“Chris has been a credit to himself and our football club, and will always have the full support and appreciation of every member of our Supporters Club.
“Onwards and hopefully upwards. Up The Toffees.“
If Sorensen can bring his habit of winning silverware with him to Merseyside he would be a very popular appointment.
The 41-year-old also has experience in the Champions League, so the move is certainly a forward-thinking one.
But he will need to bring about a major improvement on this season for that to come into play.
