Everton fans want shock swoop for Rafael Benitez

Everton fans were not impressed by Tuesday’s links to Marco Silva, and they’re convinced there are better candidates out there.

Everton fans shared a collective sigh of relief when Sam Allardyce was sacked on Wednesday, but reports earlier in the week suggested Marco Silva would be his replacement, and fans were not happy about it.

Silva impressed when he first moved to England with Hull, but his new manager bounce quickly wore off and the Tigers were relegated.

The charismatic manager’s impressive start with the club yielded a new job offer though, and he started last season in charge of Watford.

Some impressive early results helped by the incredible breakout of Richarlison quickly faded away, and the Portuguese boss was sacked after a run of terrible form.

Fans are concerned over the defensive frailties in both English teams Silva has managed, and they’re desperate for a more proven winner.

Arsene Wenger is a possible short-term fix, while plenty of fans are convinced Paulo Fonseca and former PSG man Unai Emery should be the front-runners. Finally, there are more than a few shouts for a shock swoop for former Liverpool man Rafael Benitez.
