Everton Gauge Benitez Interest As Report In Turkey Claims Fatih Terim Offered Position



Late yesterday, there were multiple reports linking Rafa Benitez to the open Everton job. That, of course, would be a shocking appointment considering Benitez’s close ties to Liverpool, where he managed from 2004 to 2010.

There has never been a manager to take the reins of both clubs. Benitez continues to live on Merseyside and has openly admitted his desire to return to the Premier League. However, Everton seems like the one Premier League club that Rafa would rule out managing.

The claim is that Everton owner Farhad Moshiri has reached out to Benitez, and other available managers, to gauge his interest in the position. Moshiri was recently forced into a managerial search when Carlo Ancelotti abruptly left to return to Real Madrid.

His top targets were ex-Wolves boss Nuno Espirito Santo and West Ham manager David Moyes. Everton moved on from Espirito Santo, who was also in talks with Crystal Palace before those broke down earlier this week.

David Moyes has a storied history at Goodison Park and has worked wonders with West Ham. However, Moshiri will only speak to Moyes if granted permission by the West Ham board. So Benitez is now part of a second tier of candidates that includes Lille’s Christoph Galtier and Brighton’s Graham Potter.

Sport Witness has cited a report from Turkish outlet Fotospor that Everton have made an offer to Galatasaray manager Fatih Terim, who has also managed the Turkish National team on three separate occasions.

As far as Benitez agreeing to join Everton, I’ll believe it when I see it. The logistics would be perfect for the Spaniard but the emotional turmoil seems too great. The problem that Rafa could face is the jobs are beginning to dry up with Wolves recently appointing Bruno Lage as their next manager.

    From catching up on the last few days here I’ve read over and over again that Friday is a really important day, so I’m hoping to wake up tomorrow to some major news!

    Not holding my breath like 🙂

    We’ve had the hype about Friday. Let’s see if it lives up to the expectations! If any Toon takeover news fails to materialize, then at least we have the start of the Euros eh?

    Fantasy League is almost at 40 people. What a shocker! Didn’t think more than 10 would join, so that’s pretty good I reckon 🙂

    Night all!

    Sorry to put a downer on things but nothing will happen today, all that is scheduled is a 5pm deadline for the EPL to give documents over to the Judge so he (and our side) can look at them, and that won’t commence until next week anyway.

    Mike Ashley has been a disaster for NUFC I doubt there is a more hated individual in the Newcastle/Tyneside area. I don’t care who takes over because ANYONE would be an improvement

    Bruce ahead of the transfer window: “I think what you are going to see, especially during the pandemic, is that we haven’t seen many big transfers and I can’t see things changing in the summer.” Day 2 of transfer window: Villa smash their transfer record.
    Meanwhile Cabbage lines up new deals for Wallace and gromit(Aka Carroll and Gayle)

    Today is just another day in the long drawn out legal proceedings that has seemed to rumbled on for what seems like an eternity, will today’s news be broadcast by the BBC or make the six o clock news? A huge day is when we hopefully hear the news that a takeover has been approved and Mike Ashley and Lee Churn?ey have officially left the building.

    I have an opinion but I’m not sure everybody does that’s just a generalisation. What about all them fence sitters what’s their opinion on the opinion debate do they have one or are they keeping powder dry ready to form an opinionated opinion when the fence is getting painted

    I haven’t even thought about Tennis, might give Wimbledon a watch this year as I always used to enjoy it. Had a pitcher of Pimms at the pub the other night, I would gladly watch Wimbledon in a pub environment with Pimms flowing haha

    I think in terms of Newcastle and today, just hope that the league don’t get the CAT case dropped and in the next few weeks we hear some official news about what’s happening surrounding it. I’m sure there’ll be lots of rumours today floating around about it mind you.
