TBR View: Santo appointment can help add stability at Everton

Over the last few seasons, there has been a lack of stability at Goodison Park. However, the appointment of Santo can change the mood in the northwest.

He provided Wolves with a great deal of stability and consistency upon his appointment back in 2017.

Following his arrival, the club secured promotion to the top-flight and secured back to back top-half finishes in the Premier League.

Finishing in the top half in your debut season can normally prove a fluke as Sheffield United proved. However, to do it twice in a row shows off the quality of the 47-year-old.

His attractive style of football will also be a key aspect in the decision-making over his appointment.

The Midlanders have been brilliant to watch at Molineux Stadium, pulling off victories against the likes of Arsenal and Chelsea last season.

And with the club’s owners backing him financially, Santo proved astute in the transfer market.

The likes of Daniel Podence and Pedro Neto have been shining lights with their performances this year. Neto has earned links to a variety of Premier League clubs, a sign of his quality.

Santo would be a brilliant manager appointment by Everton, who desperately crave some stability. The last few years have shown how poor the side have been both on and off the field.
