Former Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal is the latest name being linked with the managerial position at Everton football club.
David Unsworth is still in charge of first-team matters at Goodison Park, but it is thought that the Under-23s boss stands little chance of being named head coach on a permanent basis.
Watford’s Marco Silva is the favourite to arrive, but Van Gaal is the latest name in the picture.
The 66-year-old has led the likes of Barcelona and Bayern Munich during a glittering managerial career, whilst he steered Man United to the FA Cup during his time at Old Trafford.
Van Gaal won 54 of his 103 matches in charge of the Red Devils, before Jose Mourinho was named as his replacement.
Everton could certainly do a lot worse than appointing a manager who has vast experience of the European game, but it appears that the club’s supporters are completely against the idea of the Dutchman pitching up on Merseyside.
Van Gaal, then?
Yes or no?

No no no! We need a young ambitious foreign manager. Van Gaal 's best days are behind him. Please rule out old guys and British guys.

Nope!! This would be a MASSIVE lateral step in my opinion! Reckon they should just stick with Unsy for the time being til the right candidate, whoever that is, pops up. Rather than making a decision for the sake of it as this seems to be!

So it would be from one Dutch coach playing boring, uninspiring football to another. No. Absolutely no chance.
