Neville Southall names his managerial candidate for Everton

Mourinho & Bench - Chelsea

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

Neville Southall has suggested on social networking site Twitter that Everton should appoint Jose Mourinho as the manager.

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

The Toffees are having a disappointing season and are set to finish outside the top 10 in the Premier League.

Mourinho is without a managerial job at the moment, having parted company with Chelsea in December 2015.

Former Everton goalkeeper Southall has urged the Merseyside outfit to make a move for Mourinho.

Mourinho is one of the best football managers in the world, but would he be interested in taking charge of Everton?

The Portuguese has worked with some of the best players on the planet at some of the biggest clubs in the world.

Everton are a big club in England, but they do not have world-class players and are not in the Champions League.

Would Mourinho be interested in taking charge of a club who will not even finish in the top 10 of the Premier League this season?
