Everton continues the search for a successor to Marco Silver, no decision has been made
As Everton continues to weigh options for a new manager to replace Marco Silva, former manager David Moyes remains a viable replacement. Vitor Pereira, Shanghai SIPG coach officially withdrew his interest yesterday and opted to stay in China. The coach was being considered by Everton, but there hasn’t been any agreement on whether to appoint him.
Now, club owner, Farhad Moshiri has to consider other options which include David Moyes. Now the billionaire is investigating the possibility of appointing Carlo Ancellotti if he will be available. Napoli sacked the sixty-year-old Italian despite the fact that he led them to the knockout phase of the champions league.
Also, the club held talks with Unai Emery informally after the coach was sacked by Arsenal. However, the talks have not gone further than this stage. Eddie Howe of Bournemouth is also being considered by Goodison Park. The chances of Ancelotti picking Goodison Park is low since Arsenal is also looking out for him. Others such as Manchester City and Howe assistant manager Mike Arteta do not seem likely to want to leave their clubs.
The impact of Duncan Ferguson on and off the football pitch stimulated Everton’s support against Chelsea. However, it remains that 56-year-old Moyes has a chance to be invited back to work with the team. Moyes has been considered for a return in some capacity since before Silva was relieved of his position. Everton’s board did not support immediately since angry fans didn’t take the news so well.
Moyes is in good form and expected to return to the job he left in 2013 for Manchester United in an interim capacity. Pereira was grateful to have been a possible candidate for the role but said that he holds SIPG close to his heart and intends to continue to coach them.
