Despite David Unsworth’s desire of making the managerial role at Everton more permanent, the higher-ups are not sure about leaving the former Toffees left-back in charge of the team.
Accordingly, a few reports claim that the English side is keeping its options open. Furthermore, one of the potential choices for the job seems to be the former Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal.
The Dutchman guided the Red Devils to their first FA Cup in 12 years, only to get sacked later on in 2016. The 66-year-old has been out of work since leaving Old Trafford.
Van Gaal was considered to have retired, as he himself claimed on several occasions that the United job would be his last. Nonetheless, the former Ajax coach has been linked with a number of high profile vacancies across Europe over the past 12 months.
Before retiring from office, Van Gaal purportedly might give one last shot with Everton, who are currently residing in the 16th position in the Premier League table, just 3 points above the relegation zone, with only 3 wins from their opening 12 games.
In fact, as per reports, Van Gaal’s odds on becoming the next boss at Goodison Park have dropped dramatically from 40/1 to 4/1.
SURELY NOT…?! 😳
Louis Van Gaal is 4/1 (from 40/1) to be the next Everton manager! 👀

The instrumental figure could aid the Goodison Park outfit to achieve more triumph in the coming future, due to the classy managerial skills he has showcased in the past. The influential manager has coached Ajax, AZ, Barcelona, Bayern Munich, Manchester United, and the Dutch national team.
