Everton: 5 Potential Foreign Based David Moyes Replacements

    We look at 5 potential replacements for David Moyes should the Everton manager look to pastures new in the summer.

    Slaven Bilic

    He was the player that could have been at Everton.  His career at Everton was marred by injuries and suspensions and it never really seemed to take off like it should have.  Bilic has proven himself as a decent manager and even started (after a temporary spell with Hajduk Split) his managerial career with his national team – Croatia.  Bilic is now at FC Lokomotiv Moscow in the Russian league.  Bilic is known to rigorously study his opposition to prepare.

    Luis Garcia Plaza

    The young Getafe manager is getting rave reviews in Spain, currently leading the club to 8th in the table.  As a player, Garcia never really made the grade and was forced to retire due to injury at only 28.  Garcia started managing non league, but made his name when he got Levante promoted back to La Liga, before joining Getafe in 2011.

    Vitor Periera

    Linked to the Everton managers position only today, the Porto coach is out of contract at the end of this coming season so would be seen as a wise choice by a board lacking serious cash.  Pereira was Andre Villas Boas’s number 2 at Porto, before being promoted to head coach when AVB left for Chelsea.  Periera lead Porto to the championship and supercup in his first season in charge.  Porto currently lie 2nd in the Portuguese table.

    Vincenzo Montella

    The ex-Italian international was a quality player and played for Italy 20 times and had a loan spell at Fulham before retiring in 2009.  Montella started his managerial career at Roma, taking over from Claudio Ranieri leading the club to 6th in  the Italian league before the new owners cut short his Roma career.  He linked up with Catania guiding them to midtable and above archrivals Palermo for the first time in 8 years before leaving to join Fiorentina in July 2012.  They currently sit 4th in the table.

    Ole Gunnar Solskjaer

    The Ex Manchester United supersub learnt his trade under the best with Sir Alex Ferguson.  He started off managing Man United reserves before taking over in his homeland in Norway at Molde in January 2011.  Solskjaer has won 2 Norwegian league titles in a row with Molde and is seen as one of the hottest managerial prospects in world football.
