Would Moyes have been the right pick?
David Moyes’ hopes of securing a return to former club Everton are reportedly fading, as the Toffees look to secure a new manager as soon as possible.
Moyes has been consistently linked with a return to his former club since Marco Silva was sacked.
The Portuguese boss was given his marching orders after a 5-2 loss in the Merseyside Derby last week.
That loss left Everton sat in the relegation zone, and under real threat of being dragged into a battle at the bottom this season.
Duncan Ferguson was appointed caretaker boss, and guided his side to a shock 3-1 win over high-flying Chelsea last weekend.
Goals from Dominic Calvert-Lewin and Richarlison secured the win, as Everton frustrated Frank Lampard’s side.
However, the search for Everton’s next permanent manager continues, and David Moyes’ name has been regularly linked.
Now, it appears his hopes of getting the job are fading.
Moyes’ hopes ‘appear to be fading’
According to the Liverpool Echo, Moyes’ hopes of returning ‘appear to be fading.’
They claim that ‘Everton are open to the idea of appointing a manager who does not have any Premier League experience and David Moyes’ hopes of a Goodison return also appear to be fading.’
Their idea of appointing a manager without Premier League experience could lead to several options.
Ex-Valencia boss Marcelino has been linked with both Everton and Arsenal, and could now be a candidate.
Meanwhile, the Echo claim that ‘the possibility of making a move for Carlo Ancelotti has been discussed by the club’s hierarchy’.
The Italian has been heavily linked with the Toffees this week, in what could be a coup for the club.
