Everton fans have been left livid on social media after Toffees chairman Farhad Moshiri blamed the fans for "forcing managers" out of the club.
Moshiri appeared on talkSPORT on Thursday, under 24 hours after he publicly backed under-fire boss Frank Lampard. He said: "I put my money where my mouth is, that’s the most an owner can do."
However, he then took aim at the fans when he said: "All the managers have been driven by the fans, not by me, initially." Before adding, on the board: "The board’s been there for a long time, they are dedicated & local."

One fan fumed: "No, the fans were sending threats to Benitez before he was employed; no one wanted Sam Allardyce at the club. Lampard was wanted by the fans because he's a young English manager and they were going to pick Vitor Pereira!"
"This guy should not own a football club or be involved in football at any level, he has got no clue," a second added. While a third tweeted: "He’s actually delusional, we’re going down but at least he’s thrown money about!"

And a fourth added: "I’m done, with this clown now! Proper head in the sand stuff!"
Lampard's job on Merseyside is hanging in the balance as the Toffees are stuck in the relegation zone.
Everton came crashing out of the FA Cup too this month, as they were embarrassed by Manchester United, but Lampard remained in a job. Discontent in the fanbase was met with an open letter from Moshiri.
He said: "I have faith in the work being done not only by our manager, but our director of football (Kevin Thelwell) and our board of directors."
