Farhad Moshiri

Usmanov focused on Arsenal, not Everton

Moshiri - UsmanovWhen Farhad Moshiri bought his 49.9% stake in Everton Football Club almost a year ago, many assumed that his business colleague and friend Alisher Usmanov would be joining him.

When Usmanov’s company USM took out a naming rights deal with Everton on the Finch Farm training ground, some assumed the deal was close to completion and Usmamov would sell his shares in Arsenal and join Moshiri at Everton.

Today, in an interview with David Conn in the Guardian, however, a spokesperson for Usmanov has insisted that he is focused on his 30% stake in Arsenal.

“Everton represents a great opportunity for USM to leverage for the first time the global appeal of the Premier League to promote its holdings in a number of companies and brands,” the spokesperson said.

“As the executive chairman and significant shareholder of USM, Farhad Moshiri is uniquely placed to align the commercial interests of his group and Everton.

“Whilst they work together on most things, when it comes to football Farhad’s interest is Everton and Alisher Usmanov’s is Arsenal.”
