Everton: Fans react to Marcel Brands’ backing of Erik ten Hag

Everton: Fans react to Marcel Brands’ backing of Erik ten Hag - Everton

Everton sacked Marco Silva after a dreadful start to the season left them in the relegation zone, and one report has claimed Marcel Brands wants Ajax boss Erik ten Hag to turn things around.

A humbling 5-2 defeat at the hands of neighbours Liverpool was the last straw for the Everton board, who decided to dismiss Silva after 18 months in charge at Goodison Park.

According to Goal, former boss David Moyes is in the running to return to his old stomping ground; Moyes only left in 2013 to succeed Sir Alex Ferguson at Manchester United.

Despite this, they also report that other candidates are being considered, including former captain and current Manchester City assistant Mikel Arteta.

Leonardo Jardim of Monaco is also on that list, as is Ajax’s Erik ten Hag, who is the preferred option for Director of Football Marcel Brands, Goal’s report claims.

Everton face a tough fixture list in December, facing the likes of Chelsea, Manchester United and Leicester City, making life for any new manager extremely difficult.

Ten Hag though brought a youthful and exciting Ajax side to the Champions League semi-final last season, crushing Juventus and Real Madrid along the way, and plenty of fans have been reacting to the news that he has been backed by Brands.

Here’s how some Everton fans reacted to the reports:

Could Everton attract Diego Simeone?
