Everton’s search for their next manager continues, with daily updates continuing to push one candidate or another ahead only to change their minds their next day.
Rafa Benitez has apparently been offered the Toffees manager position according to TalkSport’s Jim White, who claims to have connections with majority shareowner Farhad Moshiri.
Spanish football analyst Guillem Balague claims that Benitez would be a ‘perfect’ appointment.
Perfect choice for this moment when the club want to keep building strong foundations and create the conditions to win regularly. Simple https://t.co/itU5n0oeWs— Guillem Balague (@GuillemBalague) June 16, 2021
