Everton Identify Top Two Managerial Targets
Posted: 19 June 2021
English Premier League side Everton FC have been in search of their next manager after the much-fancied and loved Carlo Ancelotti left for Real Madrid CF a couple of weeks ago.
Sky in England have confirmed to us that The Toffees have identified Rafa Benitez and Nuno Espirito Santo as the prime targets for the top job at Goodison Park.
However, Sky understands up to eight candidates have been considered by the Everton board which includes former striker and current coach Duncan Ferguson, former Bournemouth boss Eddie Howe and Lille’s Ligue 1 title winning manager Christophe Galtier.
The Merseyside club are desperate to fill the vacant role before the players return for pre-season training in mid-July, with Santo the overwhelming favourite to take over.
