Roberto Martinez out - who will Everton go for next?

Football News

Following an underwhelming season, Everton made the not-too-surprising decision to sack Roberto Martinez.

Ahead of the final day of the season, Martinez left the Toffees sitting in 12th place in the Premier League, with just 44 points from 37 games.

Everton's home form this season has been a major problem and a major issue for the club, which could have been one of the deciding factors behind the decision to sack Martinez.

Despite getting to the FA Cup semi-final, it wasn't enough for the Spaniard and he was released from his duties during the week.

Attentions at Goodison Park will now turn to finding his replacement, and here are three managers who have the credentials to take the reigns at the Merseyside club.

Frank de Boer (Unemployed)

One man who has been heavily linked in the early discussions on who should replace Martinez is the Holland legend Frank de Boer. The Dutchman recently left Ajax after relinquishing the Eredivisie title to rivals PSV Eindhoven.

On the whole though, his spell in charge of the Dutch side was a major success. He won four league titles in six seasons, as well as two Dutch Manager of the Year awards.

One question would be, could he adapt to the Premier League's competitive nature after a largely two horse race with PSV in his homeland?

Despite the unanswered question, he definitely has the potential to succeed.

Andre Villas-Boas (Zenit)

Another manager who may be on the Toffees' radar is Portuguese manager Andre Villas-Boas.

The former Tottenham and Chelsea chief hasn't really had a fair crack of the whip in the Premier League, and may be keen for a chance to really prove himself once again in England.

He burst onto the scene at FC Porto, winning a Europa League and league double in 2010-11. He has also won the league title, the domestic cup and Super Cup while in Russia.

David Moyes (Unemployed)

Moyes enjoyed a solid spell at Everton, staying there for 11 years before his career started to unravel.

His ill fated spell at Manchester United was followed by a disappointing reign in Spain with Real Sociedad.

Could a return to the club where he made his name be the perfect way to revive his career? He led Everton to a fourth-placed finish during the 2004-2005 season. With some investment in the squad and a strong work ethic, who's to say he couldn't do it again?

Who should Everton appoint as manager following Roberto Martinez's dismissal? Have YOUR say in the comment section below!
