Marcel Brands and Bill Kenwright are concerned that Everton appointing Vitor Pereira would be a huge gamble, and they would prefer David Moyes to come in, according to a report from The Sun on Sunday (8/12; page 65).
The Toffees are continuing their search for their next manager. Marco Silva was dismissed in the wake of their Merseyside derby defeat last week. Duncan Ferguson has taken some of the pressure off of the club’s hierarchy by overseeing a victory over Chelsea at the weekend.
But it appears that there may be plenty of twists and turns ahead before an appointment is made.
The Sun on Sunday (8/12; page 65) has reported that Farhad Moshiri is interested in Pereira following the advice of super-agent Kia Joorabchian.
However, both Brands and Kenwright feel that a move for Pereira would be a huge gamble. It is said that they would prefer the Toffees to target Moyes, Carlo Ancelotti or Eddie Howe.
Ferguson’s first game in interim charge suggests that Everton could have the opportunity to take their time over an appointment. Nevertheless, it is not ideal for the three key decision-makers to be split.
Of course, it is natural for each man to have different ideas. This has the potential to be a massive moment for the Toffees as they look to compete with the division’s heavyweights.
