Everton approach Emery for the vacant manager position


Just several weeks from his sacking at Arsenal Unai Emery has already been offered a job at another Premier League club - Everton. The Spaniard underwent an interview with the Toffees executives as the club from Liverpool is weighing in on which candidate to bless with their trust.

The meeting was held in London and the main takeaway is that Emery wants more time to consider whether jumping back in the saddle and especially in the Premier League, is a wise move for him.

Everton are searching for a new manager after they parted ways with Marco Silva last week but Emery is just one of the candidates.

As evident by the relatively recent situation when Arsene Wenger publicly revealed Bayern Munich invited him to an interview, the results are not guaranteed.

David Moyes was the biggest favourite to land the managerial spot as the Scotsman made his name at Goodison. Even the bookies were pretty sure but whether it was because of the fans' lukewarm response to the idea, or because of behind the scenes negotiations, it seems like Moyes fell back in the pecking order.

Shanghai SIPG boss Vitor Pereira is believed to at top the board's wishlist, with Carlo Ancelotti also being on it.

But Emery does see England as a viable option, as well as Italy and his home country of Spain.

The Spaniard is keen to continue improving his English, a weak point in his stint at the Emirates. Emery was aware of the ridicule he was receiving online, but also around the training grounds, for his broken English and specifically the way he would pronounce "Good evening" at every press conference.

The manager wasn't really bothered but asked how many Brits would be proficient at speaking Spanish. Although, one might wonder who much good would a move to Liverpool do to Emery's English.
