Everton’s new manager, Rafa Benitez, is a “strong contender,” according to Antonio Conte.
Everton are looking for a new manager after Carlo Ancelotti’s abrupt exit.
The now-former Blues manager abruptly left for Real Madrid at the start of this month, and the club is now seeking for a replacement.
Everton’s 10th-place finish in the Premier League will be a target for whoever takes charge.
Here’s our daily round-up of the newest rumors about who might be the next Blues manager.
Rafa Benitez is reportedly in’serious contention’ to become Everton’s new manager, according to the Daily Mail.
After leaving the Chinese Super League last year, Benitez is out of jobs and eager to return to managing in England.
According to the article, former Liverpool manager Farhad Moshiri is “increasingly interested” in taking over at Goodison Park.
Moshiri is also expected to speak with Benitez about the vacancy, given the Spaniard lives in Merseyside with his family.
According to a former Premier League manager, Brighton manager Graham Potter would leap at the chance to join Everton.
Potter, like with a slew of other contenders, has been linked with the Goodison position after excelling during his two years at Brighton.
Potter would join Everton if the club wanted him, according to former Birningham and Scotland manager Alex McLeish.
McLeish told Football Insider, “I appreciate his methods, his style of play, it’s incredibly entertaining.”
“In certain games, Brighton failed to score goals. They were the better squad in the end, but they still lost games. This was primarily owing to the strikers’ lack of experience.
“I think if he gets a club like Everton, he’ll realize he needs to bring in forwards with more substance.
“I know Danny Welbeck, and he and his team were fantastic. The summary comes to a close.
