Villas-Boas linked to Everton job, fans react

Numerous names have cropped up during Everton’s hunt for a new manager following Ronald Koeman’s dismissal over a month ago.

Sam Allardyce, Sean Dyche and Marco Silva have been touted within the rumour mill, and now former Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur boss Andre Villas-Boas has entered the fray.

The Portuguese coach has emerged as third favourite (8/1) with Sky Bet to take the reins from temporary boss David Unsworth.

Villas-Boas is currently in charge of Chinese Super League side Shanghai SIPG, but rumours are rumbling that he could leave the Far East following Sunday’s defeat to Shanghai Shenhua in the Chinese FA Cup final.

After Unsworth recorded back-to-back defeats, in which nine goals were conceded, the fans are more desperate than ever for Everton to appoint a new manager.

Villas-Boas has Premier League experience having coached Chelsea and Tottenham for one year each.

It is unclear whether he would be willing to take on a club that needs pulling away from relegation, but the fans have had their say on the possibility.
