Everton chairman Bill Kenwright has announced that he expects to unveil the new Goodison boss within a few days, reports The
Everton have been seeking to replace Man United-bound David Moyes, with Wigan boss Roberto Martinez widely expected to be the man Kenwright announces will lead Everton into the new season. Martinez has reportedly told current boss Dave Whelan of his intention to leave the DW Stadium.
Kenwright has also interviewed Porto coach Vitor Pereira and former Schalke coach Ralf Rangnick, who is said to have highly impressed during the meetings. However, Martinez has also impressed Kenwright over the course of two interviews, and he is hot favourite to land the job.
The three men comprise Kenwright’s final three-man shortlist for the job.
The club are also waiting to see what shape their backroom staff team will take, with David Moyes appearing keen to retain many of those he worked with at Everton when he moves to Old Trafford. Alan Irvine, the Toffee’s highly respected head of the youth academy, appears a good bet to be one of the names to move across to Manchester.
