Many Everton fans will be wondering how they got to this point. They would have been confident going into the season following their club-record spending haul in the summer transfer window. Ronald Koeman was seen as the man to take them to the next level but it didn’t work out. The big question now is, where do they go from here.
Their 2-0 defeat away to Leicester will have only increased the club’s desire to bring in a permanent manager as soon as possible. The big question for Evertonians is what direction they go in next. Roberto Martinez and Ronald Koeman both underperformed at the end despite promising starts to their tenure. Will the club look for someone outside of the Premier League or will it be a former Everton player such as current caretaker David Unsworth? We take a look at the current names in the frame for the Everton managers role.
Sean Dyche – 3/1 with Coral
The Burnley has done an outstanding job at Burnley since taking over in 2012 and the club now finds themselves in 10th place in Premier League. The offer of Everton and the bigger wages and budget that this now entails will surely be very tempting.
David Unsworth – 9/2 with Betfred
The current caretaker manager had two spells as a player and will be hoping to get the job on a full-time basis. He will need to convince the Everton hierarchy that yesterday’s performance wasn’t a sign of things to come.
Marco Silva – 7/1 with Betfair
The current Watford manager has also been in charge of the Vicarage Road club since the start of this season but has impressed. It will be interesting to see if Silva fancies a job change this early into his current reign.
David Moyes – 12/1 with William Hill
Will Everton fans come to regret singing that? The former Everton manager of 11 years left the club for Manchester United in May 2013 but was sacked the following April after a poor season. The Scot has struggled in other jobs since. Will David find home again at Goodison Park once again?
Chris Coleman – 25/1 with SkyBet
The current Wales manager is seemingly being linked with every managerial vacancy at the moment but has reiterated his commitment to the Welsh national team. Perhaps, the Everton job will be the one that tempts Coleman back into club football.
