Koeman to Everton – Advanced talks

Everton are to hold advanced talks with Southampton manager Ronald Koeman today about taking over as their new manager according to the Dutch press.

A few Dutch sources have said that Koeman will meet the Everton hierarchy with his agent Rob Jansen about taking over from the sacked Roberto Martinez.

Koeman has been the toffees top managerial target throughout the campaign despite showing an interest in Sevilla coach Unai Emery.

Koeman has just returned from holiday and his agent has also held talks with Southampton to discuss their future plans.  It has also been rumoured that Arsenal would like Koeman to be their next boss once Arsene Wengers contract expires.

Would you be happy with Koeman as manager?

  1. Why would koeman want to go to Everton??maybe 30years ago Everton were a decent side.now they are a mid table nothing team with an ageing squad that doesn’t have as much quality as Southampton!

    • Because Everton has a history and even with Southamptons tremendous 7th place finish, we normally do that in our sleep mate..

      We may have an ageing squad, but we also have some fantastic youngsters to come in, shed loads of money to chuck at new players and a new stadium on the horizon.

      If you even believe that Southampton are close to being on a level with Everton, then i’m afraid football isn’t for you mate.

  2. Never say never but this is extremely unlikely as he has another year on his contract with Saints and has said many times he will honour that contract. I’d be surprised if he were not a man of his word. And if he broke that word and agitated for a move would he be the sort of manager Toffees would want? I think not. Unlike the outfit down the road Everton have a bit of class and honesty about the way they go about their business.
