Everton fans can’t decide if they should swoop for Benitez

Everton fans have been discussing a possible shock move for Rafael Benitez, and they’re completely split on the Spaniard.

For many Everton fans, the interest in Rafael Benitez is a non-starter, as no former Liverpool manager should ever be allowed to take the helm at Goodison.

Benitez won the Champions League with the Reds in 2005, and many Blues still haven’t forgiven him for branding them a “small club” back in 2007.

Marco Silva is odds on to be the new Everton boss, but a report from the Liverpool Echo on Tuesday claims the search is not over, and new sporting director Marcel Brands is considering other options.

The report from the Echo does not mention specific names, but Benitez has been linked with both the Everton and West Ham jobs in the last week or so, and only one of those is still available.

Former Arsenal men Arsene Wenger and Mikel Arteta have both been linked with the job, but there is no other candidate with the CV that Benitez can boast.

The current Newcastle boss has done exceptionally well with limited resources on Tyneside, and has multiple league titles to his name, as well as that famous Champions League medal.

Fans can’t decide on the tactical mastermind though, as some are yearning for a proven winner, but others are refusing to take a former Liverpool boss at Goodison.
