Rafael BenÃtez has been appointed manager of Everton under a three-year contract with the owner, Farhad Moshiri, insisting his controversial choice is “the best man” ???? to deliver success
The former Liverpool manager, 61, faces a huge challenge to win Everton’s fan base after describing his new employers as “a little club” ???? in 2007 But Everton, who claim to have carried out “a solid and far-reaching recruiting process over the past three weeks which has included several interviews with several candidates”, maintains that BenÃtez was the strongest candidate available
Duncan Ferguson, among those expected to replace Carlo Ancelotti after the Italian’s surprise return to Real Madrid on June 1, will remain in BenÃtez’s squad with goalkeepers coach Alan Kelly Other appointments including BenÃtez’s longtime coach Paco de Miguel are expected in the coming days Everton’s first team set to resume training on Monday
Moshiri, the majority shareholder who conducted the search for a manager with the support of his business partner Alisher Usmanov, said 😕 ? Rafa impressed us a lot with his knowledge and experience, but above all with the passion and hunger he showed to join our club
â ???? We name Rafa because we believe he will bring success to our club and the Evertonians To put it simply: we have to be on top of the league and win trophies Rafa is a proven winner with extensive experience in international coaching and we have found the best man to do it for usâ ????

Everton director of football Marcel Brands and chairman Bill Kenwright were suspected of being against the highly controversial nomination, although the latter said in the club’s official statement: “? Rafa BenÃtez joins Everton Football Club at an exciting time On behalf of the Board of Directors, I wish him good luck in the success of our football club â € “ success that our supporters aspire and deserveâ ????
