Paul sat down for an exclusive interview with Everton's Director of Finance today.
Following the publication of the 2017-18 accounts, Paul sat down for an exclusive interview with Everton's Director of Finance and Commercial Office today for The Blue's Room's regular Everton Business Matters podcast.
The two discussed the club's current financial situation, the improvement in Everton's non-playing commercial performance, Ryazantsev's thoughts on the role that recruitment, academy development and player trading plays, funding for the new stadium at Bramley-Moore Dock and Farhad Moshiri's fresh capital injections into the club which now stand at £250m.
Sasha expressed his desire that Everton now become self-sustainable rather than have to rely on support from the major shareholder.
We have huge potential as a team & club. The move to the new stadium is a compelling proposition. The challenge for me is to ensure we grow our commercial revenue away from reliance on broadcast revenue alone.”
