According to BT, Everton have made an enquiry about Kasper Hjulmand as they look to replace Rafa Benitez in the Goodison Park dugout.
What’s the story?
Well, Everton are without a win in eight games, and it seems as if Farhad Moshiri and Bill Kenwright are growing frustrated with Benitez.
BT believe the Toffees have asked people familiar with Danish football about Hjulmand, who is currently in charge of Denmark.
You may recall seeing the 49-year-old on the touchline at Wembley, as England beat Denmark 2-1 in the EURO 2020 semi-final.
Earlier this year, Hjulmand said he doesn’t plan on going anywhere and that he’s happy with life in charge of Denmark right now.
However, as BT mention, the Dane left the door open to taking another job if the right opportunity presented itself.
Hjulmand was mentioned as an option for Aston Villa when the Villans sacked Dean Smith – however, they eventually opted for Steven Gerrard.
Kasper Hjulmand an interesting option to replace Rafa Benitez at Everton
Everton haven’t been too creative with their managerial appointments in the past, hiring the likes of Sam Allardyce and Marco Silva.
However, Hjulmand would certainly be a different type of move.
He has done an exceptional job with Denmark, guiding them to the EURO 2020 semi-final while also qualifying for the 2022 World Cup with ease.
Hjulmand adopts an interesting 3-4-3 style, which has seen him win 130 games throughout his career as a manager.
If Everton replace Benitez with Hjulmand, you can’t accuse them of not trying something different – it would certainly be a bold move.
