The best betting sites have now installed Vitor Pereira as the odds-on favourite to become the next manager at Everton Football Club. The Portuguese has apparently thrown his hat into the ring despite a dubious managerial track record.

The bookies now think it's likely that the former Porto and Fenerbahce manager will take the reins, with Frank Lampard, Duncan Ferguson and Wayne Rooney next in the betting. However, the latter revealed recently that he hadn't held any talks with his boyhood club.

Everton supporters might take a dim view of Pereira being appointed considering that he has no Premier League managerial experience and the 53-year-old was also relegated from the Bundesliga with 1860 Munich which doesn't bode at all well.

Pereira Odds-On to Become Next Everton FC Manager

Everton supporters will be scrambling for information on Vitor Pereira after the Portuguese became the new betting favourite to replace Rafael Benitez. What they read might not fill them with confidence. He was most recently in charge of Fenerbahce in 2021 although he lasted just a few months after a series of underwhelming performances.

Pereira previously took charge of Chinese Super League club Shanghai SIPG and initially did well when winning the title during his first season. He was apparently approached by Everton during his time at the club, despite the fact that his time with 1860 Munich in the Bundesliga ended in tears.

It would certainly be a big gamble to appoint someone like Pereira although the 53-year-old now heads the betting market and could well be the preferred choice of owner Farhad Moshiri. There were supporter protests following Saturday's home defeat against Aston Villa and there's the danger of a relegation battle.

Ferguson in Caretaker Charge But Unlikely to Get Job

Duncan Ferguson has been appointed caretaker manager and, if the Scot takes over for a certain number of games, then some bookies will pay out on this market. The Scot is going to be assisted by the likes of John Ebbrell and Leighton Baines in the hope that the Toffees' season can be turned around before the team get sucked into a relegation scrap.

Ferguson is a big favourite with the fans and perhaps his motivational qualities will help Everton to some positive results. However, this is someone with relatively little coaching experience and this is a pretty tough job audition considering that the team are on a poor run of form.

Big Dunc has drifted on the Next Everton Manager betting market in the past few days and it doesn't appear as though Moshiri has the appetite to give Ferguson the job at this point in time. However, he might still be given a short-term contract if no deal can be agreed with Pereira.

Could Wayne Rooney Be Given a Shot at Everton?

Wayne Rooney dipped his toe into the managerial waters by taking charge at Derby County, with the former Everton striker having found life tough at the Midlands club although he managed to just about keep the Rams afloat last term. Perhaps he will want to throw his hat into the ring when it comes to the Toffees role.

Rooney is something of an Everton legend despite making a move to Manchester United and having the most successful years of his playing career with the Red Devils, with the Scouser then returning to Goodison towards the end of his time as a player and he would surely be open to forming part of the coaching staff.

Perhaps Everton would be initially reluctant to make Rooney their main manager considering that the former striker is massively inexperienced, although the way that he has performed at Derby deserves praise. Despite a points deduction, the manager has engineered a number of recent wins against some of the leading teams in the Championship, giving them an outside chance of staying up.

Could Jose Mourinho Return to the Premier League?

There was something of a bombshell that dropped on Tuesday night after news came through on Sky Sports that Jose Mourinho was under consideration to take charge at Goodison Park. The Portuguese is currently in charge of AS Roma and it would be a huge story if the former Chelsea, Man United and Tottenham manager returned to England.

Mourinho is someone who still commands huge respect and has achieved a great deal. However, the betting odds suggest that it's still highly unlikely that we'll see the Portuguese take over and he might want to continue at Roma for the time being.

Much depends on whether Farad Moshiri can secure talks with Mourinho and the fact that Carlo Ancelotti and Rafael Benitez have been the past two permanent managers suggests that the experienced coach might be open to resurrecting the fortunes of the Toffees.

Could Roberto Martinez Return to Everton?

It would be intriguing if Roberto Martinez relinquished the reins when it came to the Belgian national team to take charge of Everton for the second time, with his first stint having come to an end in 2016 after previously being given the job in 2013 and there was definitely an attractive style of play under the Spaniard.

Martinez has been in charge of Belgium since 2016 and has largely been considered to have been successful, with the Red Devils reaching the semi-final stage of the 2018 World Cup and he works with some of Europe's leading players.

It would be interesting to see if Martinez is open to a return to Merseyside and the fans might be open to him being given a second chance despite the previous stint ending on a fairly sour note. The Spaniard is apparently open to a move back to Goodison Park and has a reputation for playing attractive football.

Cannavaro Hold Talks with Everton FC

According to the Daily Telegraph, Fabio Cannavaro has been interviewed in relation to the Everton FC manager's position, with the Italian having been offered the actual position according to Italian news sources although the World Cup winner's odds are currently as big as 10/1.

The 48-year-old has recently held a number of coaching positions within China and that includes the Chinese national team, while he was previously in charge of Guangzhou, Tianjin Quanjian and Al-Nassr. It will be interesting to see whether this sort of experience can translate in the Premier League.

Many might regard the Italian as being a risky appointment to replace Rafael Benitez, with the Liverpool Echo suggesting that he's not in consideration to take charge right now, with the club potentially holding out to see how Ferguson fares.

Frank Lampard Likely to Be Keen on Everton Job

At one stage, Lampard was favourite to take charge at Norwich City and it looked close to being a done deal. However, the former Chelsea and Derby manager pulled out of the running and is still a free agent but clearly keen to return to the game in some shape or form.

Lampard would certainly be interested in holding talks with the Merseyside club and this could be a chance for him to resurrect his managerial career, with former counterparts such as Steven Gerrard and Patrick Vieira also holding roles within the Premier League.

There is clearly potential to do well with Everton although they have slipped down the pecking order in the English top flight and it could be a daunting job for someone like Lampard who had previously started to look out of his depth at Chelsea.

Potter Also Among Everton Betting Favourites

Everton might be casting an envious glance towards Brighton & Hove Albion considering that a club with arguably less resources sit ninth in the Premier League table and also nine points clear of the Toffees. Graham Potter is in charge of a Seagulls side who are moving in the right direction under the Englishman.

It is noticeable that Potter is one of the betting favourites to take charge at Everton FC, although one wonders if the position actually holds any appeal to a manager who is seemingly focused on the long-term project at the AMEX Stadium.

Brighton would certainly be reluctant to allow Potter to speak with any Premier League rival and perhaps the former Swansea City coach has a stronger ambition to manage of the leading clubs in England rather than an Everton side who are currently relegation-threatened.

Nuno High Up in Everton Boss Betting

No sooner had the news broken that Carlo Ancelotti had agreed in principle to become the next manager of Real Madrid had the bookies started to price up the Next Everton Manager betting market and Nuno Espirito Santo was installed as the initial favourite before eventually making the switch to Tottenham Hotspur. In the end, the Toffees opted for Benitez.

Up until the end of last season, Nuno Espirito Santo was in charge at Wolverhampton Wanderers although the Portuguese then only had a brief spell with Spurs before the board decided to act quickly and he's now a free agent.

Nuno not only guided Wanderers into the Premier League at the first time of asking but also steered them to sixth spot in the top flight and then managed seventh the following season, working his magic with players such as Raul Jimenez, Joao Moutinho, Adama Traore and Conor Coady.

Perhaps Nuno would be attracted to the prospect of replacing Benitez and looking to make Everton top six contenders again, with the former Wolves boss now trading as one of the favourites on this betting market.

Scott Parker Performing Well at Bournemouth

Perhaps Everton need a hungry young manager to take charge next and it's clear that Scott Parker could be someone who could build a new squad at Goodison Park. The former England midfielder did some sterling work with Fulham despite their relegation and is now in charge at Bournemouth.

The Cherries are currently second in the Championship table and this ambitious manager has been linked with a number of Premier League manager positions, with the Everton role likely to appeal to him.

Could Galtier Be the Answer to Everton’s Problems?

Christophe Galtier has slowly risen towards the top of the next Everton manager betting market and perhaps the Frenchman is the solution at the Merseyside club, with the 54-year-old having recently led Lille to a shock Ligue 1 triumph during the 2020/21 season before promptly stepping down and announcing that his work at the Stade Pierre-Mauroy was done.

Galtier is clearly highly-rated considering that he managed to engineer a title success by toppling a big money Paris Saint-Germain side in France and there has been plenty of money for someone who was in charge at St Etienne for eight years before getting the opportunity to manage Lille and elevate them into the big time.

The former Marseille defender won’t have been short of offers since stepping down from managing Les Dogues and perhaps Everton is a nice fit for a manager who might desire the chance to manage in the English Premier League, with the coach likely to be given funds to strengthen a squad who will have ambitions of playing Champions League football in the next few years.

Hjulmand Drifts on Everton FC Manager Market

Kasper Hjulmand was the favourite to replace Benitez a few weeks ago, with the Denmark manager having steered the Scandinavian side through to the 2022 World Cup. The Danes have proved to be one of the best teams in Europe under their coach and it's little surprised to see him linked with jobs such as this one.

However, Hjulmand isn't blessed with experience when it comes to managing big clubs. He was in charge of Nordsjælland between 2016 to 2019, with the Dane having previously managed Mainz and this could be something of a gamble despite how well he has fared in the international set-up.


Next Premier League Team Manager Odds


Sean Dyche Might be Ready to Switch From Burnley

Sean Dyche is someone who continues to keep Burnley FC in the English Premier League on a relatively shoestring budget, with the Clarets boss having even steered the Lancashire side into the Europa League and he’s well-regarded by his peers, with Dyche deploying a fairly pragmatic approach out of necessity.

Perhaps Dyche wants to play more expansive football given the right tools and he might be interested in the chance to further his career at Goodison Park, with this being one of the longest-serving managers in the English top flight although there’s a school of thought that he has taken Burnley as far as he can.

The current Burnley manager is likely to be among the betting favourites to take charge of Everton when the betting market goes live and it’s worth monitoring the prices which will indicate as to whether he could be in the running as far as a potential shortlist is concerned.

David Moyes Might Be Sweet on Toffees Return

Now that the bookmakers have gone live with the Next Everton Manager betting market, we’re likely to see the betting odds jumping around as the speculation intensifies, although it’s not a million to one shot that David Moyes might return to Goodison Park, with the Scot having achieved great things during his first stint at the Merseyside club and that included guiding them into the Champions League.

Moyes jumped at the chance to manage Manchester United although that assignment quickly went pear-shaped and there were further spells at Real Sociedad and Sunderland which also didn’t work particularly well, although the manager has rebuilt his reputation at West Ham United who would be reluctant to lose him.

Perhaps his friendship with shareholder Bill Kenwright could swing things in favour of Everton should Moyes be offered the chance to return home and the chance to guide the Toffees back into European competition might be an attractive proposition, with Moyes demonstrating this ability with West Ham last season.
