Everton next manager: Galtier & Potter odds SLASHED for Toffees job, Nuno still favourite after Crystal Palace snub

EVERTON are still searching for their next managerial appointment.

The Toffees, led by majority shareholder Farhad Moshiri, are on the hunt for their sixth manager in five years after the sudden departure of Carlo Ancelotti.


And there's been no shortage of activity in the betting market with several candidates drifting and shortening over the past few days.

More than 40 candidates were put forward for the position.

But that list has been whittled down with former Wolverhampton Wanderers head coach Nuno Espirito Santo the current favourite.

The 47-year-old had looked out of the running after lengthy discussions with Crystal Palace.

However, he's back in contention at odds of 17/10 having failed to reach an agreement with Eagles chiefs over contracts for his sizeable backroom staff.

There's been plenty of support for Brighton's Graham Potter, who is now available at 10/3 having been offered at 16/1 last week.

Everton next manager odds – Betfair

  • Nuno Espirito Santo – 17/10
  • Graham Potter – 10/3 – Was 16/1
  • Duncan Ferguson – 5/1 – Was 11/1
  • Christophe Galtier – 11/2
  • Eddie Howe – 6/1
  • David Moyes – 7/1
  • Rafael Benitez – 9/1
  • Frank Lampard – 14/1
  • Paulo Fonseca – 14/1

The Seagulls boss is under consideration at Goodison Park though compensation could be an issue with his contract running until June 2025.

Assistant manager Duncan Ferguson comes next at 5s.

SunSport understand that Big Dunc rejected the opportunity to follow Ancelotti to Real Madrid in favour of making the step up on Merseyside.

Another name who's seen heavy support in the betting market is former Lille boss Christophe Galtier, who's shortened markedly from 20/1 to 11/2.

The Frenchman handed in his notice having guided the club to the Ligue 1 title and is someone the Goodison hierarchy are considering.

Former Lille sporting director Luis Campos also sent tongues wagging by revealing that Galtier would be the ideal candidate for Everton.

Campos told Sky Sports: "Christophe has all the qualities to coach in England, technically he is very astute and is extremely detailed in his planning when preparing a team.

"He likes a 4-4-2 system, which would fit with the Premier League and he is a fantastic motivator in the dressing room.

"He likes to build a side with quality and youth, he is someone that can develop a team ethic, and he is also a fantastic human being."

Eddie Howe and David Moyes are available at 6/1 and 7/1 respectively with Rafa Benitez in behind at 9s.

Frank Lampard and Paulo Fonseca complete the list at 14s with Betfair.
