Next Everton manager: Steven Gerrard and another Liverpool legend in shock link to replace Carlo Ancelotti

The rivalry between Liverpool and Everton has always been an interesting one from an outside perspective, mainly because it’s both intense yet somehow friendly at the same time.

The club’s have shown great unity at times so you always get the impression that they’ll come together for the greater good of the city, so there may not be the “aggressive hate” that you see in other rivarlies.

That doesn’t mean they won’t do everything to defeat the other on the pitch, while you don’t really see players cross the divide so the two names mentioned here have to grab the attention:

There’s no doubt that Steven Gerrard would be the ultimate shock because he is an absolute legend at Anfield, while you also get the impression for him that the end game is taking over from Jurgen Klopp eventually.

Opinions will be split in terms of him having to leave Rangers to prove himself in the Premier League before that can happen, but staying at Ibrox has to be better for his chances of getting the Liverpool job.

He still has a lot to achieve with Rangers as his record in the cups is abysmal and he’ll get a crack at the Champions League this year, so surely there’s nothing in that one.

Rafa Benitez is a much more compelling name to watch because if you take the history out of this – Everton is the perfect job for him.

He would get a big Premier League club with a strong squad, the ambition to improve and some resources to make signings, but does his past connection with Liverpool make that impossible?

The answer to that is probably yes, but this could be an interesting situation to keep an eye on.

    Rafa Benitez would nicely. Carlo was a LET DOWN WITH THE WAY HE MANAGED THE CLUB THIS SEASON. REAL CAN HAVE HIM FOR£50 million compesation.

    Rafa Benitez would do nicely. Carlo was a LET DOWN WITH THE WAY HE MANAGED THE CLUB THIS SEASON. REAL CAN HAVE HIM FOR £50 million compensation.

    The only the CA brought to EFC was a history. His departure proves that cannot be relied upon as a guide to future success.

  5. FRANK WORRALL says:

    After the way Carlo was treated on his previous years at Real, plus the reasons why Zidane has called it a day, it’s hard to understand what motivates him to go through it all again. It can’t be a lack of funding to buy better players, or an unsupportive fan base. Sadly he hasn’t achieved much at Everton while his team selection and poor tactics leave much to be desired. In the long run, a new face may be for the best.
