How Everton fans reacted to news ex-Liverpool boss Rafa Benitez could become their new manager

How Everton fans reacted to news ex-Liverpool boss Rafa Benitez could become their new manager

Carlo Ancelotti departs

A somewhat surprising managerial change took place earlier this month, when Carlo Ancelotti left Everton to re-join Real Madrid.

Ancelotti had previously been in charge at the Bernabeu between 2013 and 2015, during which time the Italian guided Madrid to a Champions League triumph, a UEFA Super Cup, Club World Cup and a Copa del Rey.

And, late on June 1st, the news that Ancelotti had returned to the Spanish capital was confirmed by Everton:

Rafa Benitez to Everton?

This, of course, means Everton have to find themselves a new boss ahead of next season.

And thus far, a number of names, including David Moyes, Eddie Howe and Nuno Espirito Santo, have been linked.

The former of that trio has since signed a new three-year deal with West Ham. Nuno, meanwhile, was said to have been close to landing the job last week, but little news on that front has since been forthcoming.

Instead, another name has now come to the fore. That man is former Liverpool manager, Rafael Benitez.

According to a report from The Times, Everton have held further talks with the Spaniard over the manager’s role at the club. This comes after Benitez had initial talks with the Toffees’ owner last week.

How Everton fans reacted to Benitez news

The news that Benitez could be set to take over at Goodison Park has, unsurprisingly, not gone down too well with some Everton fans.

Benitez is, as already mentioned, an ex-boss of Everton’s bitter rivals, Liverpool. He is also not exactly known for overseeing an exciting brand of football.

In turn, Everton’s fans have taken to social media to make their feelings regarding a potential Benitez appointment known, with just some of the tweets showcased below:
