Mackay becomes the latest name linked to Goodison job.
Cardiff City boss Malky Mackay has become the latest name linked to the soon to be vacant manager’s job at Everton, according to the Daily Star.
Current boss David Moyes has now been confirmed as Sir Alex Ferguson’s successor at Manchester United and will link up with his new club at the end of the season.
Everton have been linked with a number of names to replace Moyes with the likes of Neil Lennon, Roberto Martinez and Mark Hughes all in the frame to take over, and the latest hopeful to be added to that list is Cardiff chief Malky Mackay.
The 41-year-old Scot has just overseen the Welsh side’s rise to the Premier League on a shoestring budget and Everton, who are now known to give chances to manager’s and players from lower divisions, a chance to show what he can do at an established top flight institution.
However, Mackay is now seen as a hero in the Welsh capital and the club have made it known that they will do everything in their power to keep hold of him by backing him in the transfer market this summer in the hope of maintaining their place in the top flight.
