Many Everton fans have called on the club to remove chairman Bill Kenwright from his duties.
The lifelong Evertonian has always been a divisive figure, although not quite as much recently following him having sold his majority shares in the club to Farhad Moshiri.
Kenwright remained in his position as chairman after selling the club to the former Arsenal board member, meaning that while he remains on the Toffees’ board, he no longer has any final say.
However, with recent reports claiming that Kenwright and Moshiri were at odds in the boardroom over whether or not to appoint David Moyes as Marco Silva’s successor, with Kenwright favouring his former manager, several fans have had enough of Kenwright’s influence.
Taking to social media, a number of Everton supporters have had their say on why Moshiri needs to remove Kenwright from his role with the Blues.

Read Everton Verdict
Kenwright has for some time now been considered the harmless contributor to Everton’s efforts, someone who just sits on the side and advises without much consequence, but now he is proving to be more dangerous.
David Moyes’ appointment would set the club back so many years, and Kenwright’s constant heart over head approach to football would hold Everton’s progress back drastically, if Moshiri wasn’t there to prevent that from happening.
I think it is time for Kenwright to go, because ultimately he isn’t providing Everton with anything at this point if his advisory role isn’t proving effective.
