Everton great Peter Reid has suggested on Twitter that he does not want to see David Moyes back at Goodison Park.

Moyes has been touted as a potential replacement for Ronald Koeman, who is under serious pressure with the Merseyside club.

Koeman’s Everton side have been in dire form this season, and there appears to be no sign that they are getting any better.

Head coach Ronald Koeman of Everton is seen during a preseason friendly match between FC Twente and Everton FC at Sportpark de Stockakker on July 19, 2017 in De Lutte, Netherlands.

Everton were hammered 5-2 by Arsenal in their most recent match, and they were pummelled for most of the contest by Arsene Wenger’s men.

Everton have now failed to win any of their last five matches in all competitions, and currently sit in 18th place in the Premier League table.

It has now been suggested that Moyes could return to Goodison Park, to try and rekindle his past successes.

But Reid is clearly not eager to see Moyes return, if Koeman is given the sack in the coming weeks.

Koeman has so far held on to his job since Everton’s defeat to Arsenal, but the situation looks precarious - and the Dutchman surely cannot hold on for much longer, unless the Toffees’ form dramatically improves.
