Report details big Everton update in manager hunt, Moshiri makes his mind up
A new report on Friday morning has given a big update about Everton in their hunt to appoint a new manager, with Rafael Benitez primed to arrive at Goodison Park.
According to TalkSPORT, Everton owner Farhad Moshiri has made up his mind on Benitez after extended discussions.
The Merseyside club will “push ahead” to bring him in.
Apparently, a deal is edging closer and could even be wrapped up this weekend. However, it’s worth pointing out some Everton board members have concern about the response from supporters to Benitez rumours.
Benitez had an extremely successful six-year period at Anfield earlier in his career at Liverpool, but it sounds like he could now be joining the blue half of the city.
The 61-year-old Spaniard is out-of-work, so there has been nothing interrupting discussions.
Everton fans should accept Benitez appointment through gritted teeth after long manager hunt
Everton’s managerial merry-go-round has been in full swing since Carlo Ancelotti decided to leave for the glamorous Real Madrid.
Firstly, it’s got to a stage where the Toffees need someone through the door now before pre-season starts. Secondly, Benitez is someone with massive experience at the top level and he should be able to work well with the current Everton squad. Finally, he’s a high-profile name that could be useful in the transfer market.
It’s going to be intriguing to see how Benitez gets on in his return to English football.
