Kia Joorabchian has launched an attack on Jamie Carragher after comments about Everton this week.
Kia Joorabchian has hit out at Jamie Carragher after the Liverpool legend claimed the agent’s relationship with Everton owner Farhad Moshiri was “very bad”. Joorabchian labeled the intellectuals “uneducated” for his comments.
Carragher hits out at Everton on Sky Sports’ Monday Night Football this week. Childhood Toffees fans claim they are the worst running team in the Premier League.
Everton currently sit 19th in the table and sacked manager Frank Lampard on Monday. They were left red-faced the next day when Arnaut Danjuma was set to sign but at the last minute pulled out of the deal and has now joined Tottenham instead.
Joorabchian has a relationship with Everton owner Moshiri, which Carragher highlighted as a problem. He said: “You start with the owner, Farhad Moshiri, he doesn’t know what he’s doing but he has a lot of money.
“He put a lot of money in. He had a very bad relationship with Kia Joorabchian, and that partnership caused a lot of problems at Everton.
“Players come in, managers change left, right and centre. Why do all Everton managers fail? Why?”
Carraghed joked that he would wait for Joorabchian to call him to respond. But the agent responded publicly on talkSPORT instead.
He spoke to the radio station on Monday morning, where Simon Jordan was also present. Joorabchian has made no secret of his feelings towards Carragher and referred to an incident from 2018 where the pundit was suspended by Sky for several months for spitting out of his car window into another vehicle which included a 14-year-old girl.
Joorabchian said: “When Simon says something I respect it, because he is an educated person, unlike someone like Jamie Carragher who is unfortunate in a greenhouse, spits out of a car window and has no education about his background when he makes comments.”
Joorabchian explained that his influence on Everton was less than what Carragher thought. He added: “That is why I think I will continue and clarify this point.
“I made three transfers during Farhad’s tenure at Everton. These three were Richarlison from Watford which was a very successful transfer, Bernard’s free transfer from Shakhtar Donetsk when his contract expiiiiiiiired and he was a player who was not a complete disaster and did very well.
“We have Carlo Ancelotti who is the only manager they have ever recommended. We always do the same as we do with every club in the Premier League, every time a manager is needed and we have clients, we always present. Our clients.
“Then we were involved in the loan of Anwar El Ghazi which was part of the transfer of Lucas Digne in the FFP situation. Anwar came this way and unfortunately it did not work for them because there was a change of manager and when that change happened, Anwar was not in the plan of the new manager.”
