Bookies Have Slashed Odds on Martin O’Neill Taking Over at Everton

Everton might well be finally closing in on a new manager – and Martin O’Neill could be the shock name about to take the reins at Goodison Park.

The Toffees have been searching for a new boss ever since sacking Ronald Koeman at the end of October, and interim manager David Unsworth’s chances were seemingly dashed on Thursday night as the club lost 5-1 at home to Atalanta in the Europa League.

The Merseyside club have been linked with Watford’s Marco Silva for some time now, but according to Odds Checker, O’Neill is now the out-and-out front-runner, with some bookies pricing him as the 4/6 favourite following a flurry of bets.

The Irishman hasn’t been involved in club football since leaving Sunderland in 2013, and has been in charge of the Republic of Ireland ever since.

But their failure to reach next year’s World Cup might have prompted O’Neill to weigh-up his options – so is he really on the brink of becoming Everton’s new manager?
