Jack Nayler, a former employee of Chelsea, PSG, and Real Madrid, has apparently been hired by Everton to serve as their new Head of Sports Science.
The Toffees made the announcement that Nayler, who has collaborated closely with Carlo Ancelotti at a number of clubs, had gone to Goodison Park via their official website.
He most recently held the same position at RB Leipzig, and he will now collaborate closely with Kevin Thelwell and Frank Lampard.
Nayler has expertise working with premier clubs, all of which under Ancelotti saw varied degrees of success.
Leipzig are a very different club, but they are incredibly well run, and his experience there will undoubtedly be priceless.
They are among the best-run clubs in Europe, and they have signed excellent managers and players thanks to their data-driven strategy.
In light of the fact that we do not anticipate Nayler to continue his career at Goodison Park, he should be seen as a mid-term hire.
If he can transform the Toffees, it will be enough for him to spend a short time at each club before moving on to his next task.
It’s about time that they started acting more like a modern club, and hopefully, his hiring will bring about that transformation.
