Everton Fans Are Desperately Hoping Martin O’Neill Rumours Aren’t True

Everton Fans Are Desperately Hoping Martin O’Neill Rumours Aren’t True

Martin O’Neill is the surprise name being strongly linked with the vacant manager’s job at Everton – but the club’s supporters really don’t seem keen on the ex-Celtic boss.

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.

And, as we told you earlier today, O’Neill is now odds on to take over at Goodison Park after he was backed-in to 4/6 with some bookies, after originally being as far out as 100/1 with some companies.

He might be an experienced coach with Premier League experience – but it seems a lot of fans would be dead-set against O’Neill’s appointment:

O’Neill is a hero to Leicester and Celtic fans, and did a pretty good job at Aston Villa too, whilst his time at Sunderland was probably a bit underwhelming.

But does he really merit this type of reaction? What do you think?
