Jamie Carragher suggests Roberto Mancini for Everton

Mancini Jr Man City

Jamie Carragher says that former Manchester City manager Roberto Mancini would be ideal for Everton.

Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher has suggested in The Daily Mail that former Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini would be ideal for the Everton managerial job.

Everton are on the lookout for a new manager following the departure of Roberto Martinez on Thursday.

The Toffees have struggled throughout the season and are set to finish outside the top 10 in the Premier League.

Former Liverpool defender Carragher believes that Mancini would be a good choice to replace Martinez at Goodison Park.

“And what about Mancini?” the former England international wrote in The Daily Mail. “He is a big name with a fine pedigree, who has done well with Inter Milan since leaving Manchester City and he would jump at the chance to work in England again. He might just be ideal.”

Mancini was in charge of City from December 2009 until May 2013 and was quite successful in his spell.

The former Italy international forward guided the Citizens to the Premier League title in 2012 and the FA Cup in 2011.

Now at Inter Milan, Mancini has proved that he is a very good manager, but would Everton be able to prise him away from the Serie A outfit?

This is the 51-year-old’s second spell in charge of Inter, who are fourth in Serie A at the moment.
