Everton After a response from fans, Rafa Benitez’s new manager stance has been revealed, as the club considers its alternatives.
Despite fan opposition to his probable appointment, Rafa Benitez remains the front-runner in Everton’s hunt for a new manager.
The Blues are continuing to analyze all contenders as they move into the weekend, and a decision on who will succeed Carlo Ancelotti is not expected until early next week.
Farhad Moshiri is aware of fan reaction to Benitez’s prospective appointment, but the former Liverpool manager remains the favorite to take over as Blues manager at this time.
Nuno Espirito Santo, who was in pole position seven days ago, is still on Everton’s shortlist, along with other managers such as Graham Potter and Roberto Martinez.
Before signing a new contract with West Ham, David Moyes was also considered.
Despite some fan outrage at the club’s decision to appoint the 61-year-old, Benitez remains in pole position for the time being.
The search for Ancelotti’s successor is currently the third-longest in the Moshiri period, and it will enter its 18th day on Saturday, but the possibility of Benitez taking over at Goodison Park has made it the most contentious.
Moshiri will spend the weekend deliberating about who should succeed Ancelotti at Everton, aware that many supporters are opposed to Benitez’s appointment.
