Everton Managerial Search - Down to three?

Jan Kruger

Things are hotting up in the search for the next Everton manager, vote for who you think should be the gaffer!

And then there were three.

Roberto Martinez has had the inside track on the Everton job for some time now, but numerous sources now confirm that Bill Kenwright is indeed doing his due diligence and playing the field. The skeptics among us think this is all for show and just to leverage a lower salary for Martinez, but we won't know until the decision is made. There is also the matter of a £2 million release fee to be paid to Wigan for him. Read our review of Martinez here.

Vitor Pereira has been talked about for some time now, and there is no doubt that he should have us playing a brand of attacking football that will be quite pleasing to the eye. But he is untested in England and there might be an adjustment period with going with the current Porto manager. Read our review of Pereira here.

Ralf Rangnick is a new name in the mix, but comes with European pedigree and fits right in with the flavor of the month - German football. The ex-Schalke man certainly has qualities, but has also had the tendency to move on after a few years from each position. He also quit the German club citing exhaustion in 2011, and had previously walked away from Hoffenheim when the club sold a player without his knowledge. Shades of a Moyes-type personality there. Read our review of Rangnick here.

Finally, since Kenwright is Kenwright and nothing is set in stone until it is actually being scribed, there is always the possibility of someone else being handed the reins.. both external and internal candidates abound. Let us know in the comments who you think might be still in the running.
