'Not for me', 'I'd have him': Everton fans react to Eddie Howe links

Everton are still looking for a new manager to replace Carlo Ancelotti and Eddie Howe is the latest name to get linked with the job today.

The Express reports that Howe is keen on taking the Everton job. That is, of course, if the club wanted to appoint him.

The Toffees are still reeling a bit after seeing Ancelotti leave last week. The Italian coach upped and left out of nowhere, after Real Madrid made a surprising move to bring him back to Spain.

Since then, the likes of Nuno Santo have been tipped to take over at Goodison Park, while Duncan Ferguson is also thought to be keen.

Naturally, Everton fans picked up on the news and have been discussing Howe’s credentials on social media.
