Three unmentioned managers who could replace Roberto Martinez

Football News

After a woeful season, Everton are now in the hunt for a new manager to fill the post left by Roberto Martinez this week.

The Merseyside club have had a horrendous season since falling out of the top ten and with the players noticeably losing confidence with the former Wigan coach.

With so many managers available, the Everton board will have a huge decision to make in the coming weeks. Frank De Boer, David Moyes and Rafa Benitez have all been linked, however, there are three other candidates currently going under the radar who are more than capable of working at Goodison Park next season.

3. Marcelo Bielsa

This one could go two ways, top four or prison. The former Argentina manager is perhaps among the most unstable football managers on the planet, however, he is undoubtedly a great coach and is hailed as a footballing genius.

Bielsa is famous for his 3-3-3-1 attacking formation, which would be a risk in the Premier League. However, his attacking philosophies would be appreciated by the Everton fans.

The Argentine is also famous for allegedly threatening a fan with a grenade in his hand, after they turned up at his house.

At the beginning of the season, he was at Marseille, and on the opening day after a narrow defeat to Caen he told the media: "I’ve finished my work here, I’m going back home." The following day he quit. It would be a bold and risky appointment, but it could pay off.

2. Unai Emery

Emery could become a hero with the Everton faithful if his Sevilla side beat Liverpool in the Europa League final next week. But why hasn't Emery been touted to become the next Everton boss?

Odds for the former Valencia man to become manager is around 40/1, which makes Martin O'Neil more likely to become the next manager.

Emery would be a great appointment for Everton, with three Europa League medals (which could be four next week) to his name he would be welcomed with open arms.

1. Rudi Garcia

Garcia is currently 25/1 to become Everton's next manager, and with his CV, there is no reason why he couldn't fill the role.

Garcia worked wonders in France with Lille, guiding them to their first league title in over 50 years, prompting a lot of interest in his services.

However, it was Roma who won his services, and despite leading them to a second-place finish two years running, Garcia was sacked after a poor start to his third season.

He has shown enough promise in his last two jobs to prove he would be a more than adequate replacement for Roberto Martinez should Everton fail with their approaches for the initial favourites.
