Many Everton fans have been left to fume as a manager update emerged on Rafa Benitez.
Writing in his latest piece for The Times, Paul Joyce has shared that the Spaniard has held further talks with the Goodison Park faithful’s hierarchy and remains in pole position to become their next boss, following the departure of Carlo Ancelotti to Real Madrid.
Should Everton have hired Benitez?
Farhad Moshiri and his associates continue to see Benitez as the coach to take the Merseyside club forward, as he has now had four rounds of talks with the Toffees despite fan backlash.
It is understandable why so many supporters are against Benitez’s potential appointment, given his past connections with Liverpool, with whom he won the UEFA Champions League with in the 2004/05 term, while he previously called the Blues a ‘small club’ after a draw in the Merseyside derby back in February 2007.
Everton fans on Benitez manager update
These EFC supporters fumed as the manager update on Benitez was shared on Twitter:
“Wowwww all this time to end up with Rafa Benitez”
“Rafa hasn’t won anything for years, he’s a dinosaur like Carlo”
“If he appoints him, he’s as ignorant as the Super League snakes”
“This is the most distant I’ve ever felt from the club, getting Rafa will end in tears. I won’t be bothering no more if he is employed by the club. Fans say Dunc isn’t ready but give me a manager who we can all get behind. Them derby defeats will be a billion times worse under Rafa”
“They obviously do not get us the club the fans anything”
