Everton are once again being linked with new managerial candidates, and fans aren’t particularly happy with this week’s links to Laurent Blanc.
According to Le10 Sport, Everton will compete with Chelsea and Lyon to bring in former PSG and France manager Laurent Blanc.
Blanc left PSG in 2016 for the same reason that every manager leaves PSG – he failed to win the Champions League.
That said, he is still a highly respected manager and the fact that Everton are competing with Chelsea for managerial targets is surely a good sign for the Goodison faithful.
Everton fans have made plenty of noise about their pursuits of Marco Silva and Paulo Fonseca, but the more experienced Blanc could actually be a better choice for the Toffees.
Either way, the fact that the club are clearly on the hunt for a replacement for Sam Allardyce will be music to the ears of Everton fans, who have grown tired of his negative and uninspiring football.

Definitely need a progressive younger manager for me. Obviously he's a big name but I don't think he'd be the right fit for us.
