Departing Everton winger Townsend defends ‘really passionate’ Kenwright
Departing Everton winger Andros Townsend has defended the club’s top brass.
Former chief exec Denise Barrett-Baxendale has already left the club, with chairman Bill Kenwright soon to follow.
Townsend said on talkSPORT: I have only been there a couple of years but I can only speak from my experience. Denise was amazing, she was so dedicated at her job. Bill, I know he has had his stick as well, the fans want him out but again, the dealings I have had with him. Such a passionate man.
“He came in and did a talk at the end of the first season and really just poured his heart out saying how much he loved the club, how much he wanted us to survive, how much it has been in his blood for the last however many years.
“He is really passionate, yes he has probably made mistakes but that guy cares about Everton Football Club and I hope the fans, yes they want him out, they want new ownership, they want new people in but that man is Everton through and through so I hope once all is said and done he does get the credit he deserves from the fanbase.”
