A new name has sprung up in the manager’s hunt game at Everton. The man in question here this time is Bournemouth boss Eddie Howe. The journey of Eddie Howe is exactly what fairy tales in football are made of. He was one with Bournemouth through the club’s worst and the best. He bested the thick and thin at the club and is perhaps the most influential person in the club’s dream run to the top of the domestic league competitions in English football.
Eddie Howe was a professional player for Bournemouth till 2007. When he retired in 2007, the Cherries were playing in the fourth division of domestic English football. He has had two managerial stints at the club and under his reign, he oversaw their progress through the third and the second division to the glory of the top tier football in England.
The Cherries are in no mood to rest on their achievements and have done well this season as well. After securing a promotion in the 2014-15 season, they finished 16th on their first campaign in England’s premier club competition. They did even better and finished ninth in the league last year to everybody’s surprise. Things have been challenging once again this year with the club currently positioned in the 12th place.
However, the club could be set to suffer their biggest blow at the end of the season if Everton were to come searching for Howe. The Merseyside club is currently owned by Farhad Moshiri, who is an ambitious owner who has spent a big fortune on buying top talents across Europe.
He got rid of Ronald Koeman in the middle of the term and might be tempted to let Sam Allardyce leave as well come the end of this season. This would mean that Moshiri and Everton will be in the hunt for a new boss and Howe might just fit the bill. Howe has enough experience of English football to take over the managerial responsibility at a club like Everton and his habit of overachieving with an average bunch of players will hand him the advantage at Merseyside where he is bound to get better players.
The question that remains is whether Howe will abandon his home Bournemouth in search of a better career at Everton. The Goodison Park outfit will bring the offer for a luring project that any manager would be tempted by and Howe will have to make up his mind between loyalty and ambition, should Moshiri come calling.
