Lössl rejoins Midtjylland

Monday, 1 February, 2021 11comments  |  Jump to last

Jonas Lössl has secured his desired move away from Everton, making a permanent switch to his original club, FC Midtjylland.

The Dane had requested a move in the past week after it was made clear that he has no first-team prospects at Goodison Park, especially after Robin Olsen's arrival on loan from AS Roma last October.

Everton had signed Lössl from Huddersfield Town on a free transfer two years ago but he now departs for the club where he began his career back in his native Denmark.

Trim that wage bill.

What an incredible waste of time and resources this move to bring Lossl was. Yes, it was a free, but we paid his wages and I’d argue any time spent securing his services could have been better spent elsewhere.

Good luck. He will be the answer to a very tough Everton trivia question in a decade or so.

Never looked good enough to put pressure on our England no.1. Good luck to him.

We signed him when we needed experienced cover.
Not good enough for our current ambitions.
He came. He's gone. I wish him well.

Never looked good enough Phil? He never played a single game for The Everton first team.

Are you basing this on his warmups pre match :-)

No great Lossl.

Lossl came from Huddersfield Town on a free transfer, got a pay raise from us, then ended up back on loan at Huddersfield Town. That pretty much sums up the Lossl era.

He was too much of a non-entity for me to even wish him well.

He was an experienced keeper with some Premier league experience.

Hard to judge as he's a keeper (they all seem good until they make a mistake) and I only saw him play for Huddersfield on MOTD highlights.

Seemed decent enough as a sub keeper but what we needed and still need (not urgently unless we don't keep Olsen in the summer) is better than Pickford.

Although there's 5 outfield position's too fill first as a priority for me.

Interesting to see what happens with Robin Olsen between now and the end of this season.

I have seen reports claiming he was on £50,000 a week at Everton. I know he came on a free transfer, but still that seems completely ridiculous. Does anyone have some inside knowledge or reliable sources whether that could be true?

Sportrac list his Everton salary at £14,000 per week. Which is only half of what he was reportedly on at Huddersfield. And there were indeed media rumours that had been doubled by Everton. Halved, doubled... Same difference.

It's probably a case of believing whatever you want to believe!

Thanks, Michael. His rumored salary was big news in the Danish press when he joined Everton.
