Many Everton fans have been flocking to respond to a manager update involving Rafa Benitez.
As per The Athletic, the Spaniard is willing to talk to the Goodison Park faithful about them potentially appointing him as their new boss, but his past associations with Liverpool make it difficult for the Merseyside club’s board to hire him.
Should Everton hire Benitez?
It seems as if a lot of Toffees are split over whether they think Benítez is the man to lead them forward, as some do not want to hire a coach who used to manage and was so fondly remembered by Liverpool, given that he won the UEFA Champions League with the Reds back in the 2004/05 season (Transfermarkt).
Nonetheless, he is currently available at the moment, and it may be an ideal opportunity for the Blues to take advantage of that.
Everton fans on Benitez manager update
These EFC supporters seemed split as they flocked to the manager update on Twitter:
“Rafa would be perfect for us for where we are now. The board members with the problems need to swallow some pride and realise there isn’t a lot of proven premiership quality out there and he is the best one for the job. He’s had time away from them lot and would surely relish it.”
“If Benitez is the best available manager then we should go for him and forget about whether he was an ex Red.”
“I’d honestly have him me. Just need the fans on side”
“Rafa is nothing more than a Spanish Allardyce, who has been given money and or inherited a decent squad. Did you not watch his Newcastle teams who by the way Bruce has bettered.. I couldn’t think of a worse appointment”
“I’m not willing to get behind this one.”
“Nooooooooooo he’s a Red”
