Former Everton striker wants Pochettino to succeed Koeman

Most of the sports pages are dedicating coverage to Everton’s search for a new manager.

The Merseyside outfit parted ways with Ronald Koeman on Monday afternoon, strengthening the opinion that football is a results business.

The Dutchman had only been in charge since last year and was trusted with a big transfer kitty in the summer, but after winning just two of the club’s Premier League games this season, the axe has fallen.

At the moment, Under-23s coach David Unsworth will take temporary charge of the first team, but while addressing the media in a press conference today, the 44-year-old admitted that he wants the job full-time.

Numerous names have been linked to the position, but there is a surprise one that has been put forward by former Everton striker Kevin Campbell.

Without having any inside knowledge, the ex-Arsenal player chose a coach who he would want to take the hotseat at Goodison Park.

While replying to a fan on Twitter, Campbell said that Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino would be a strong option.

Given that the Argentine is flying high with Spurs, it is wishful thinking on Campbell’s part.
