Benítez, near Everton

The Spanish coach is chosen to lead the 'toffee' next season. The Goodison Park club hopes to make the official announcement early next week.

After the departure of Carlo Ancelotti to Real Madrid, Everton, as reported by Sky Sports at the moment, already has a replacement for the Italian. Rafa Benítez, an old acquaintance from both the Santiago Bernabéu and Liverpool, seems to be the one chosen to lead the toffee project next season. The Goodison Park club, which hopes to make the official announcement early next week, would have already closed the last fringes of his contract with the veteran Spanish coach, thus signing the fifth manager in the last five seasons.Benítez will arrive, in principle, to give a bit of stability to a project not lacking in good players or budget, but which always seems to lack something to make the final leap to the fight with the greats. His arrival would also mean the return eleven years after finishing a stage in the reds that ended with a Champions League and with a team, the 'Spanish Liverpool', which has gone down in the history of English football.However, Benítez not only triumphed at Anfield, he also did it with Chelsea, with whom he managed to lift a Europa League in 2013. His last years in the Premier managing Newcastle, however, have been erratic, and his Disagreements with the club's leadership confirmed his departure two summers ago now. Between that and now he has passed through the Dalian Pro of the Chinese Super League.
