Everton’s next manager odds

The news that Marco Silva had been relieved of his duties at Everton on Thursday evening didn’t come as much of a surprise considering Everton’s poor start to the season, with only 4 wins in their opening 15 Premier League games leaving them in the relegation zone, with a 5-2 defeat to rivals Liverpool being the final nail in the coffin for Silva. For the meantime, Duncan Ferguson will act as caretaker manager of the Toffees but Everton will no doubt be in the process of looking for a temporary manager as we speak, so we’re going to look at the candidates linked with the job and the odds that the Bookmakers are giving for them to take charge at Goodison Park. If you would like to back any of the managers, we will leave the relevant link below. Please note that the stated odds were correct at the time of writing, but are subject to change.

David Moyes - 11/10

As it stands, the Bookies’ favourite to take over at Goodison Park is former Toffees boss David Moyes, who was in charge of the club between 2002 and 2013, before leaving Merseyside to manage Manchester United. After underwhelming periods in charge of: Manchester United, Real Sociedad, Sunderland and West Ham, Moyes is currently out of a job so Everton wouldn’t need to worry about buying out a contract if they bring in Moyes. Out of all the managers in the world, nobody knows Everton more than Moyes and it could be a good idea to bring in a manager who is familiar with the club to rescue their season rather than taking a risk and throwing money at a new manager and hoping it will magically improve their form like they did with Silva and Koeman.

Vitor Pereira - 6/5

You’d be forgiven for not knowing who Vitor Perreira is, we didn’t even know who he was before he was linked with the Everton job, but the bookies seem to think he is a likely candidate to replace Silva. Pereira’s managerial career looks like something straight out of FIFA, as he has managed 9 clubs in: Portugal, Saudi Arabia, Greece, Turkey, Germany and currently manages Chinese club Shanghai SIPG. But despite the fact that the Portuguese manager is constantly changing clubs, he has a good managerial record, having won: 4 league titles, 1 domestic cup and 3 supercups with a win percentage of 57.51%. Naturally, the appointment of Pereira wouldn’t seem the best fit for Everton as they can’t risk bringing in a manager who is inexperienced in the Premier League to rescue their season, but considering that Pereira is able to adapt to every country he has managed in, it could be worth a shot.

Eddie Howe - 9/1

Also linked with the Everton job is Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe, and despite us thinking that it would be a good appointment for Everton, we really can’t see Howe leaving Bournemouth. Since taking charge of Bournemouth back in 2012, Howe has taken the Cherries from a League One team to an established Premier League side. Considering Everton’s current situation, to bring in a manager who is experienced in the Premier League would be a smart move in our eyes not only for this season, but for the foreseeable future as Howe is a young manager who has shown that he if he is given time at a club, he can constantly improve them.

Rafa Benitez - 12/1

Another name being mentioned is former Liverpool and Newcastle boss Rafa Benitez. As of writing, the odds for Benitez to replace Silva is only 12/1, but we really can’t see Benitez taking charge of Everton considering his history with Liverpool, but you never know. It’s no secret that Benitez’s decision to leave Newcastle was caused by the lack of money for transfers, but considering the money that would be available at Everton, it could be something that could persuade Benitez to leave Chinese Super League club Dalian Yifang and return to Merseyside. The job at Everton is completely different from the situation at Newcastle when Benitez took over, as both clubs were in a slow decline and way underperforming, but Benitez brought Newcastle from the Championship and lead them to a 10th place finish during the 17/18 season. Considering that Everton face a real possibility of relegation, Benitez could be the best option to improve their form.
