Club Statement

Everton Football Club can confirm that Marcel Brands has left his post as Director of Football.

Brands joined Everton from PSV Eindhoven in June 2018 and was appointed to the Club’s Board in 2019.

The Owner and Directors would like to thank Marcel for the service he has given to the Club over the past three and a half years and wish him well for his future.

A strategic review of the football structure will now take place which will inform the best model for the Club to proceed with in the long-term.

In the meantime, the Owner and Board of Directors will continue to provide our manager, Rafa Benitez, with their full support.
