Everton fans react to reports Rafa Benitez could be their manager


Rafa Benitez is closing in on the Everton job after holding multiple meetings with the Merseyside outfit.

According to Liverpool Echo, the former Liverpool manager is now confident that he will take over at Goodison Park.

He is expecting a formal contract offer from club owner Farhad Moshiri after holding three meetings regarding the vacancy.

Moshiri is believed to be the driving force behind the potential appointment.

Everton fans were disappointed on social media after the news broke yesterday and the appointment could be followed by a massive backlash.

Benitez’s history with Liverpool understandably makes him an unwelcome appointment.

His comments about Everton being a small club during his time at Anfield has only made things worse.

The Spaniard’s pedigree cannot be doubted. He has proven his quality in England, Spain and Italy, winning major trophies including La Liga, Europa League and the Champions League.

Carlo Ancelotti’s departure to Real Madrid has been a shock for the Toffees and it has thrown their summer plans into major chaos.

Here is how some Everton fans reacted on social media following the reports of Benitez’s appointment.
