Everton News: Sam Allardyce on his way out?
The Daily Mail reported late on Saturday night that Everton have an eye on Shakhtar Donetsk manager Paulo Fonseca and see him as a possible replacement for Sam Allardyce.
Everton have actually invested huge amount of money this season, bringing in players like Wayne Rooney, Gylfi Sigurdsson, Theo Walcott, Michael Keane and Jordan Pickford to name few.
Despite the investments, Everton are 9th in the league at this moment, just 9 points away from the dropping zone.
Ronald Koeman was the Everton manager at the start of the season however managed to win only 2 league games prior to the Everton board let him go.
Sam Allardyce was brought as Foeman’s replacement after David Unsworth’s quick period as caretaker manager.
The previous England manager began his period at Everton in fantastic style and didn’t lose a match till his 7th game in charge.
After the honeymoon passed, Everton have actually started to lose the matches again.
The Toffees have a bad start of the second part of the season, beside the investments they’ve managed to win only 2 games, conceding 16 goals along the way. The Everton board, once again are looking for new a manager.
One of them may be Paulo Fonseca, but who he is and why him?
Paulo Fonseca is the current Shakhtar Donetsk manager since 2016. He managed to lead the team in the last 16 in the CL.
He’s the one who managed to beat City 2-1 in December.
He must be extraordinary since he succeeded to place in the top 16 of the Champions League with a team like Shakhtar Donetsk beating Napoli and Manchester City along the way.
The only question remains:
Does he really has what it needs to take the talented of Everton players to a new height in the EPL.
