The Odds On Louis Van Gaal Becoming Everton Manager Have Been Slashed

The Odds On Louis Van Gaal Becoming Everton Manager Have Been Slashed

While David Unsworth might have his heart set on making his caretaker position at Everton more permanent, the Goodison Park hierarchy aren't so sure about the former Toffees left-back being left in charge of their struggling team for the rest of the season and are keeping their options open.

One of which appears to be former Manchester United manager, Louis Van Gaal.

The Dutchman has been out of work since he was released from his contract a year early at Old Trafford in 2016, having just guided the Red Devils to their first FA Cup in 12 years.

Van Gaal was believed to have retired, having claimed on several occasions that the United job would be his last.

However, over the past 12 months, the former Ajax, Barcelona and Bayern Munich boss has been linked with a number of high profile vacancies across Europe.

Now, with Everton sitting in 16th place in the Premier League table, just three points above the relegation zone, with only three wins from their opening 12 games, Van Gaal may find himself tasked with one last job before retiring properly.

Like a Randy Orton RKO, Van Gaal's odds on becoming the next boss at Goodison Park have dropped dramatically from 40/1 to 4/1.

Quite why the former Netherlands boss is being so well fancied for the job is anyone's guess, although Van Gaal's penchant for giving youth a chance does jive well with Everton's youth policy ideals and the Dutchman moving to Goodison Park would also see him reunited with his former Manchester United captain, Wayne Rooney.

Van Gaal's one and only stint in the Premier League was a tepid two seasons as Manchester United manager. He briefly led the club back to the Champions League and won an FA Cup, but his style of football drew a lot of fierce criticism from fans and pundits. Images: PA

What do you make of the reports? Would Van Gaal be a shrewd appointment by Everton or should they be looking elsewhere for their next manager?
