Some Everton fans have been left to fume over Paul Joyce’s manager update on Rafa Benitez.
Writing in his latest piece for The Times, Joyce confirmed that previous rumours are true and the former Liverpool boss is indeed being considered for the vacant manager’s job, following the exit of Carlo Ancelotti to Real Madrid.
Should Everton hire Benitez?
He is a candidate on the shortlist of Farhad Moshiri, which also includes the likes of David Moyes, Nuno Espirito Santo, Roberto Martinez, Christophe Galtier and Graham Potter.
Some members of the Goodison Park faithful simply do not want to hire a man who used to manage and was so fondly remembered by Liverpool, given that he won the UEFA Champions League with them back in the 2004/05 term (Transfermarkt), while others believe that other candidates like some of the ones mentioned above would be far more suitable for the role.
“BENITEZ walked away from Newcastle for money nothing else, if we get him in am done with us. 50 years supporting the Toffees through good and bad, but appointing Benitez is more than I could take”
“Not watching us if Rafa is boss”
“Rafa is a big no. Galtier is the only one the fans are together on, and nobody wants to see the Spanish Sam Allardyce in charge of Everton”
“Lord help us. Not Benitez under any circumstances”
“Moshiri picked Allardyce and it was bad enough seeing Sammy Lee with him. I can’t forgive him if he gets Benitez”
