Everton fans are livid after it was suggested Marcel Brands has had no say in the Toffees pursuing Rafael Benitez to become their new manager.
We are rapidly approaching the 21/22 campaign, but the Goodison Park outfit remain without a manager after previous boss Carlo Ancelotti returned to Real Madrid (Sky Sports).
The Toffees continue to search for their new boss, and it appears that Benitez is leading the race at the moment – that has not gone down too well with the fans (HITC) considering his previous allegiance to Liverpool.
Brands is Everton’s sporting director, and should therefore have had a big say in who the next boss should be. However, as per journalist Paul Joyce, Brands has been given little say in who will replace Ancelotti.
Should Everton hire Benitez?
The news was shared on Twitter by @EvertonNewsFeed, and it attracted plenty of attention from the supporters. They took to the social media platform to share their thoughts.
Let’s see what the fans had to say about Benitez below
“If that’s true. He should walk away from the club on principle.”
“Shambles off a club”
“Absolutely shocking by the club.”
“If true it’s be a disgrace, and wouldn’t blame him for quitting”
“If this is true, he should be walking out of the door”
“Can’t believe this……. He should be solely in charge of the appointment. We will end up losing him next . Being an Evertonian is never easy”
