Tony Cascarino has named current Sheffield United boss Chris Wilder as the man Everton should target as their next manager.
The Toffees currently sit 17th in the Premier League table just above the drop zone and it’s been a bleak season so far for them.
Marco Silva is currently still in charge of the Merseyside club, but BBC reported before the weekend that the Portuguese manager is fighting for his job and that a meeting has been held between the club’s board about him.
Everton ended up losing 2-1 away to Leicester City at the weekend, with Kelechi Iheanacho scoring a 94th minute winner for the hosts at the King Power Stadium.
Times pundit Cascarino believes that Silva’s future seems doomed and has suggested Wilder as someone they look at to be his successor.
“Barring an unbelievable string of results — Everton’s next three games are Liverpool, Chelsea and Manchester United — I cannot see how he (Silva) can survive,” Cascarino told talkSPORT.
“For Everton, Chris Wilder has to be their first choice. His track record at Sheffield United shows he could transform the club. Evertonians would love him and his style of play.”
Wilder Sheffield United have been a breath of fresh air following their promotion to the top-flight and they have been excellent in the Premier League so far.
The Blades sit seventh in the table with just three defeats in 14 games so far and have been a real surprise package.
Wilder has built a team that play eye-catching football out from the back, as they are extremely brave in possession and have centre-backs that make overlapping runs.
They have the third best defensive record in the division so far and are punching well above their weight considering the players at the club.
