'Need someone like him ASAP': Some Everton fans really want 47-year-old who 'attracts quality'
The new Everton manager search is under way following Carlo Ancelotti’s departure from Goodison Park.
The Toffees fanbase was looking forward to their team kicking on next season under the world-renowned Italian.
Come Tuesday afternoon, Everton were without a manager, as Ancelotti returned to Real Madrid.
And according to talkSPORT, the Toffees are eager to bring former Wolves boss Nuno Espirito Santo to Goodison.
Everton majority shareholder Farhad Moshiri is reportedly keen on the Portuguese coach.
And some Everton fans seem keen too:
Who is Nuno Espirito Santo?
The 47-year-old was a goalkeeper in his playing days, turning out for the likes of Porto and Deportivo La Coruna.
He began his coaching career in 2010 and took his first managerial job two years later at Rio Ave.
Nuno spent two years at Rio Ave before joining Valencia, and two years later he moved to Porto.
In 2017, he joined Wolves, then in the Championship, and led them to the Premier League, where they remain.
Wolves finished seventh in their first two seasons back, also reaching the Europa League quarter-finals in 2019-20.
However, they endured a tough 2020-21 season, finishing 13th with Raul Jimenez sidelined for much of the campaign.
According to Sky Sports, Nuno is keen on an immediate return to management.
He reportedly feels he has a point to prove after his sacking at Molineux.
Others tipped to become the next Everton manager
The Independent has listed a number of candidates who could replace Ancelotti at Everton.
Eddie Howe is currently a free agent and is still available after talks with Celtic reportedly broke down.
Antonio Conte is also without a club at present after leaving Inter Milan just after winning the Serie A title.
David Moyes is currently at West Ham, so his appointment wouldn’t be as straightforward.
Rafael Benitez is a Liverpool legend, so it remains to be seen whether he would consider linking up with their city rivals.
