Everton's director of football Marcel Brands came face-to-face with a seething group of supporters who had marched to the club's training ground demanding answers after their dismal FA Cup loss to rivals Liverpool.
The Toffees fell to a 1-0 defeat to Jurgen Klopp's men, with 18-year-old Curtis Jones scoring a stunning winner as an inexperienced Reds side secured victory despite Everton playing a full-strength team.
Fans and pundits laid into the performance from Carlo Ancelotti's new team, with some accusing them of lacking passion and energy, as Liverpool were rarely troubled throughout, and now fans have decided to show their discontent.
Marcel Brands spoke with a group of angry fans who had arrived at Finch Farm on Monday
The supporters wanted answers after the 1-0 loss to Liverpool and asked to talk to the players
According to the Times, the group of fans arrived at Finch Farm on Monday morning and asked security to bring the players out so they could confront them and tell them how displeased they had been with their display.
But the demand was refused, and supporters reportedly hinted that more fans could arrive at the training ground and crowd out the exit to the facility, making things particularly awkward for the club.
Brands is then said to have appeared from his office to meet the fans at the gates, speaking to them and listening to what they had to say.
Everton were well below their best as they rarely troubled a second-string Liverpool team
