Next Everton manager
Everton started the 2016/2017 season in the Premier League fairly good. People might say that the opponents in the first five rounds were fairly weak, but the reality was that Everton and Ronald Koeman won four games and only made one draw against Tottenham Hotspurs. With these scores that team was in top 4 and the fans thought that they found their new David Moyes. Unfortunately, the things took an opposite turn and Everton is currently in the middle of the table. Since the middle of September, Everton had won only one of its ten games during this period (2-0 against West Ham United).
More and more fans of Everton are starting to express negative comments towards Ronal Koeman. So far he has the full trust of the directors of Everton, but who knows for how long this can last. The schedule is also very tough, which makes Koeman’s job even harder. Everton’s manager Ronald Koeman must prove that he is the right person for this job in the next two games of the team before the Christmas break. Everton hosts Arsenal on December 13th and also hosts the Liverpool’s derby between “The Toffees” and “The Reds” on December 19th. Negative outcomes of these games might really shake the spot of Ronald Koeman as Everton’s manager. Another arousing problem that might also cost the job of Koeman is his conflict with the fans favorite – Ross Barkley. The fans of Everton really do not see why Ronald Koeman is making a scapegoat out of Barkley. The local superstar had been staying on the bench for the last couple of games. Everton fans are starting to get really angry with Ronald Koeman. This problem combined with the horrible form and results of Everton might be a problem for the Dutchman.
Even though that we have not got any information from Everton directors regarding a search for a new manager, we already have rumors about possible candidates. The top choice of the fans is David Moyes, but the problem is that he is currently leading Sunderland. Sunderland won some of their last games and at least for now it seems that Moyes is not really available for the job in Everton.
On the other side, the most possible new manager of Everton (in case Koeman gets fired) according to specialists is Frank De Boer. The former coach of Ajax and Inter was recently released from the Italian powerhouse. He was not really successful in Italy, but before that he showed a great potential with the best team of Netherlands – Ajax. Everton had interest in De Boer during the last summer but eventually he decided to join Inter and Everton agreed with Ronald Koeman. Now the things are different and it will not be a huge surprise if we see a “Dutch” substitution on the manager position in Everton.
Another possible option for Everton might be the former coach of Manchester City – Manuel Pellegrini who is currently coaching the exotic team from China (Hebei China Fortune). Pellegrini might be interested in returning to the Premier League and Everton might be the reason for his return.
Among the list with the possible candidates for the Everton’s manager job we can find the names of Marcelo Bielsa, Roberto Mancini and even Louis van Gaal. Van Gaal reported that he is ready to come back to the Premier League. He has a lot to prove to the English fans and Everton seems like the perfect fit for the famous Louis van Gaal.
