EVERTON chief Marcel Brands held a meeting with furious fans who turned up at training to confront Toffees flops after their defeat by Liverpool, reports have claimed.
The Times say the Goodison director of football met the irate supporters in face-to-face talks.
Seven fans turned up at Finch Farm on Monday morning, it has been reported.
They are said to have demanded security bring the players out for a dressing down.
When the request was refused, it was suggested that more fans could be brought down to "stage a blockade".
Brands appeared at the gates during the toxic encounter and spoke to supporters while listening to their issues.
The Times report goes on to add that fans feel Everton has become a place where players turn up merely to collect a big pay cheque.
They added that they think players don't care about the future of the club and want to cash in while they can.
Brands held a 20-minute meeting with the supporters and said he would tell the players about their grievances.
The latest ugly episode at Everton comes after Fabian Delph had a social media spat with a fan who questioned his commitment in the 1-0 FA Cup third-round defeat by the Reds.
Boss Carlo Ancelotti joined the supporters in expressing his rage when he read the riot act to his flops.
The Everton gaffer questioned the attitude of his players during an angry dressing-room blast.
Just four games since taking over as manager, Italian Ancelotti has already lost patience with a number of them, with Gylfi Sigurdsson among those he is expected to dump as soon as he can.
The £45million Icelandic playmaker admitted after the Liverpool loss that Toffees players were fighting for their futures.
But SunSport understands Ancelotti has already given up on the 30-year-old, who has 18 months to run on his £5m-a-year Goodison contract.
Sigurdsson will be the biggest name in a cull of Goodison failures that will include Cenk Tosun, Theo Walcott, Morgan Schneiderlin and possibly Michael Keane.
England keeper Jordan Pickford should also be wary of his place following a season of ups and downs.
Ancelotti, now planning to go into the January transfer market, has ordered Brands to find him a top-class goalkeeper to rival the Three Lions’ No 1.
