Stan Collymore insists that Everton should not look to bring former manager David Moyes back to Goodison Park.
The Toffees are currently on the search for a successor to Marco Silva following his sacking and caretaker boss Duncan Ferguson helped orchestrate a 3-1 win against Chelsea at the weekend.
According to the Express, Everton owner Farhad Moshiri placed his eyes on Moyes to become the club’s next manager.
The 56-year-old has been out of work since leaving West Ham in 2018 and previously spent 11 years in charge at the Merseyside club between 2002-2013.
But Sky Sports now reports that Everton want to try bring in Shanghai SIPG manager Vitor Pereira this weak on a three-year deal before the match away to Manchester United.
Pundit Collymore has explained that Everton need to be more ambitious with their next appointment and doesn’t see Moyes as the right candidate.
“Everton need a new voice and new impetus – not yesterday’s man. So rehiring David Moyes would be a ridiculous thing to do,” Collymore wrote in the Mirror.
“ I understand there might be a short-term pull for some Evertonians, but this is a time to be bold and brave – not to go backwards. It’s a time for Farhad Moshiri and Bill Kenwright to say, ‘You know what, let’s get the man we want for the next few years now, let’s start making a proper plan’.”
Moyes was brilliant during his first stint on Merseyside, but surely would only be a short-term fix and Everton should look to be more adventurous with there appointment.
They should be able to land a big name that can help galvanise their talented group of players, as they are massively underachieving as a squad right now.
Available manager Unai Emery has been approached by Everton about the position (Sky Sports) and he’s got an impressive CV despite his recent struggles at Arsenal.
