Everton fans react to Paulo Fonseca being a contender for the manager’s job

According to former Everton director of communications Alan Myers on his official Twitter account, Shakhtar Donetsk manager Paulo Fonseca is on the three-man shortlist for the vacant manager’s job at Goodison Park, and Toffees fans have been having their say on him.

According to Alan Myers, majority shareholder is set to pick from Sam Allardyce, Martin O’Neill and Fonseca as he finally looks to replace Ronald Koeman more than five weeks after the Dutchman was sacked.

Things have gone from bad to worse for the Merseyside outfit and successive 5-1 and 4-1 defeats against Atalanta and Southampton respectively mean they need to act, and quickly.

Fonseca has been with Shakhtar since May 2016, and he has impressed by winning 56 of his 73 matches in charge of the Ukrainian outfit.
