Everton Sack Roberto Martinez

Everton are looking for a new manager after sacking coach Roberto Martinez. This comes of the back of Everton’s season who currently sit in 12th place on 44 points with one game remaining against Norwich City at Goodison Park this weekend.

There have been rumours of coaches to replace Martinez which include Frank De Boer, Manuel Pellegrini, Joachim Löw and Rafa Benitez.

Frank De Boer looks one of the favourites to take over after he recently quit as manager of Ajax. He has won 4 Eredivisie titles with Ajax and is known for his excellent tactics and could well suit Everton.

Manuel Pellegrini is another that could likely take over the helm. He is currently the manager at Manchester City but is leaving at the end of the season after Pep Guardiola signed earlier this year to take over next season. Pellegrini has won the Premier League title a few seasons back and with that EPL experience, he may well be a great signing for Everton.

Joachim Löw is unlikely at the moment as he is the current manager of National team, Germany but there is speculation that he may quit after the Euros. There are also rumours that if he steps down, he would consider the Everton job. He has won the FIFA World Cup with Germany but he does not have much success with managing a club than international so it could be a risk.

Rafa Benitez has said recently that he is interested in the Everton job but still not sure if he will leave Newcastle despite them being relegated. He has proven successful as a manager as he has won the UEFA Champions League once and the La Liga twice. He did manage Liverpool previously so if he does become Everton manager, it is unsure how the Everton fans will react to that.

There are a few managers there that can replace Martinez but Everton need to pick  a manager not to be a mid table side but guide them back to European spot contention next season.
