Everton fans are encouraged to be linked with Atletico Madrid manager Diego Simeone again, but most believe that he won’t be arriving at Goodison Park any time soon.
However, it is the potential for a Simeone appointment which has truly set pulses racing at Goodison Park.
The Argentine boss has done a wonderful job at Atleti, guiding them to two Champions League finals, but his future is being heavily speculated about right now.
If Simeone does leave the La Liga giants, there are sure to be a number of suitors for his signature.
And Everton fans admit that they think it’s highly unlikely that Simeone will be replacing Sam Allardyce, as much as they’d love him to.
Go for Diego Simeone this would simply show how much ambition was truly their and would be seen as a real appointment. Make him see a big picture with long term plan. Lets hope we are truly looking and working on this now so come end of season quick appointment— Robbie Leatherbarrow (@rwl140172) February 28, 2018
Simeone would be a dream for us; so invested in his players and so passionate with fans. Not likely though so my second preference would be the Fons.— Dominic Fitzpatrick (@toffeetower) February 28, 2018
Let’s face it neither Simeone or Enrique would come to us at the minute. And you’d hope they had more sense than to go to Silva - Fonseca for me all the way— LYKA (@lykadj) February 27, 2018
The owner has zero clue about football, I think we all know this already but thinking we have any chance of Luis Enrique or Simeone when your in a relegation battle.— Shoey Mc (@ShoeyEFC1234) February 28, 2018
Someone needs to pull him to one side and quickly.
Would rather break the bank on one of these than a truck load of new players. The true sign of a great manager is the one that can make average players into a GREAT team. Simeone fits that bill for sure. Would he come? #EFC— Cookie (@CookiesComment) February 28, 2018
Allardyce out with either Fonseca, Simeone, Enrique or Silva coming in and Walsh out with Brands coming in... sell all players that a surplus to requirements and bring in a top quality of player to push Everton forwards!— Jack (@JackE_EFC) February 27, 2018
Our fans cry about us appointing Allardyce saying there’s no ambition but when Moshiri says he want Fonseca, Enrique, Simeone or Silva he’s getting our hopes up and being stupid? Hahahahaha ok— Everton Fans Corner (@EFCFansCorner_) February 27, 2018
At the moment the favourite to take over from Allardyce is Paolo Fonseca, who has done an impressive job at Shakhtar this season.
