Ronald Koeman has this afternoon been sacked by Everton following bad results throughout the season, domestically and in Europe, and the 5-2 home defeat at home to Arsenal proved to be the straw that broke the camel’s back, as Koeman is now no longer connected to Goodison Park. However, as the Dutchman becomes the second managerial casualty of the season, there is one question which follows each of them, who will replace him?
One manager capable of taking up the helm at Goodison is Sean Dyche. The current Burnley manager, who has already taken three points off Koeman this season, is unlikely to leave Turf Moor where he is having amazing success. However, the Everton job has to be one he can’t turn down straight away. He knows how to work in the Premier League and how to win matches, and Everton is a massive club with amazing talent that would benefit hugely from the 46 year old.
Another manager could be former Borussia Dortmund manager Thomas Tuchel. The German could bring that boost to Everton, being currently out of work and having led Dortmund to DFB-Pokal glory last season. He is very young and although has no Premier League experience, has helped guide Dortmund to third place last season and into the Champions League. Perhaps he could do well in the English game.
Finally, and certainly the biggest name, is Carlo Ancelotti. The Italian has recently been booted out of Bayern Munich, and was seen at Wembley yesterday watching Tottenham vs Liverpool, showing his love for English football. He has proven himself in England and has much more fight in him. He has been European champion three times and so can definitely bring something to Merseyside that can help bring Everton more points and up the Premier League table.
