The Blues' Director of Football has brought Worthington in from Leicester City where they worked together on the reigning champions' personnel recruitment.
Worthington, 71, is based in the Barcelona area of Spain and works on scouting from the Spanish and Portuguese leagues.
He has had posts at Chelsea, Hull City, West Ham, Bolton and Blackburn in the past and has past experience working with Everton's new chief scout Martyn Glover.
Glover came on board last month as Walsh continues to build his team following his own move from Leicester over the summer.

Asked if he intends to actually buy any players, manager Koeman said: "If there's any money left after recruiting all these old farts on a massive pay-check, then yes we hope to get someone in on loan in January..."

Whatever happened to players who actually give a fuck?

Nobody in this thread has said that. Straw man.

That's what I was thinking when I saw Koeman comment that "the players need to change because I don't change".
Wtf? What is a good manager? I don't know the exact definition, but to me it's how to utilise what you have to the best effect, to the benefit of the organisation (a company or a football club) and the employees (players in the case of a football club).
