Everton fans react to Antonio Conte reports
A number of Everton fans have taken to Twitter to comment on reports from The Telegraph suggesting that the Toffees are interested in Antonio Conte as they look for their next manager.
Everton are continuing their search for Carlo Ancelotti’s successor at Goodison Park.
The Telegraph has reported that they are interested in Nuno Espirito Santo. But they have also asked about a couple of other names.
According to the report, Everton have made informal enquiries for both Conte and Graham Potter.
Conte, of course, is a free agent. He left Inter Milan earlier this year after guiding the Nerazzurri to the Serie A title this past season.
He is a Premier League title-winner with Chelsea. And he played his part in Juventus’s run of dominance in Italy – before overseeing its end this year.
Nevertheless, it appears that many of the Everton fans have major concerns.
Conte is a massive name. But some do not believe that he would take the club forward for the long-term.
He is a manager who can have an amazing short-term impact. However, that does not always translate into long-term success.
‘Terrible in the longer term’: Everton fans unsure about Conte as next manager
With that in mind, here is how some of the fans have reacted to the reports…
Imagine getting Conte though 👌

Conte would absolutely be the wrong fit! The man is a ruthless winner and has publicly fell out with Chelsea’s and Inter’s boards for not matching his ambition despite wining league titles.. I would imagine he will walk out of the door after 2 months at Everton!

I love Conte but he’s not the right fit for us. https://t.co/w9sISASwOq

I wouldn’t even consider Conte even if he’s willing. Undoubtably a great manager but we’ll be back here again within 18 months time with him, we need stability https://t.co/8tt7khmCl4

Antonio Conte is the only worthy successor to Carlo Ancelotti @Everton

Don’t even try to land Antonie Conte, we’re not that big of a club and we already spend much money on the market for the past 4 years. I do like Graham Potter. So rooting for both of Nuno and Graham. Let’s go. https://t.co/znQnKkkwQ6

Would love conte but is he going to do an ancelotti that’s the problem

Call me mad but I dont think Conte is what we need right now. And we wouldn’t progress as quickly as he would like and a year or so down the line he would leave! He’s the type to just jack and leave even if no one is after him…
