Everton are on the lookout for a new manager after Carlo Ancelotti on Tuesday night completed a return to Real Madrid. Ancelotti has replaced Zinedine Zidane at the Bernabeu. The Italian spent two years as manager at the Bernabeu between 2013 and 2015, winning the Champions League, Copa del Rey, UEFA Super Cup and FIFA Club World Cup, and has now made a return.
Everton harboured hopes of finishing in the Premier League top four this season.
However, a poor end to the campaign, especially at Goodison Park, saw them finish 10th and without any European football.
Ancelotti was only appointed Everton boss in December 2019 but with his time at the club having come to an end, Everton need a new man at the helm.
Express Sport looks at four managers who Everton could look to appoint after the 61-year-old’s departure.
Nuno Espirito Santo
Nuno rather surprisingly departed Wolves last month after four years at Molineux.
The Portuguese had a fine track record with Wanderers, leading them to back-to-back seventh placed finishes in the 2018/19 and 2019/20 seasons.
However, the former Porto goalkeeper felt it was the right time to move on after only leading the club into 13th last term.
Everton could be attracted by Nuno’s ability to get the most out of a squad of players in the English top flight.
Not many people know Everton more than Ferguson does after spending over a decade-and-a-half as a player and coach at the club.
Ferguson was interim manager following the sacking of Marco Silva in December 2019.
He was unbeaten in his four matches in charge, drawing three, and was then appointed as Ancelotti’s assistant.
It would be a big job for his first full-time role in management but Ferguson is definitely the type of character to throw everything at it.
