3 Managers Who Can Take Charge At Everton After Atletico Madrid Declares Simeone As “Untouchable”

Ronald Koeman’s unceremonious departure from the Goodison Park has left Moshiri with a lot of options to ponder upon but the Everton hierarchy is unlikely to rush things as of now.

It’s been quite a while since the Dutch gaffer parted ways with the club but the Toffees are looking in no hurry to announce an imminent successor and David Unsworth has been given the charge at the Merseyside in an interim capacity.

Atletico Madrid manager Diego Simeone’s name has popped up as a probable candidate to replace Koeman. The Argentine manager has built his reputation by creating his own brand of football and it would be a great scene at Goodison Park if he opts to manage the Premier League club.

But recent comments of the Atletico Madrid president Enrique Cerezo have not helped their cause and will force the club to rethink their decision.

“I want to say this in a loud voice.

“Simeone is untouchable at Atletico Madrid, for the players, for the directors and for the supporters. Having doubts about Cholo Simeone is not allowed here.”

With Simeone’s future now looking sealed, for the time being, Everton might have to shift their attention towards a new manager. Three such names who might take the charge at the club are as follows.

Slaven Bilic

The Croatian manager just lost his job at West Ham United and it would be an interesting choice for the club to appoint him as the manager despite his failure at the London Stadium.

Bilic arrived in East London in the summer of 2015 and was hugely successful in his maiden season as he guided the club to the seventh position, their best ever finish in the Premier League era.

But things started to roll in the reverse direction in the last season as the Hammers kept flirting with the relegation zone but managed to have a respectable finish at the end of the season.

Sam Allardyce

If Everton are looking for a short-term solution, no one is better than the former England manager. Big Sam has the perfect blend of experience and skill and could be the right man to take the club forward. He hasn’t been officially approached by the club as of yet.

David Unsworth

This looks the closest to happening. If Everton are to hire a big name manager, they would have to wait until the summer, paving the way for Unsworth for the time being. The Everton U23 boss is currently handling the charge of the senior side and if the club hierarchy doesn’t manage to find someone suitable for the job, they might rely on the Toffees faithful for the remainder of the season.
