Managerial Carousel

Rafa Benitez was officially named Everton manager on Wednesday. The former Liverpool man’s appointment by Everton President Farhad Moshiri has been controversially opposed by segments of the Everton fan base. Benitez becomes the first man in more than 100 years to have managed both Everton and rival Liverpool. Benitez replaces Carlo Ancelotti for a second time, having replaced Ancelotti at Real Madrid for a short ill-fated tenure. Ancelotti recently left Everton for a second run as Real Madrid manager. Benitez’s more recent accomplishments with Newcastle United have been somewhat dimmed by comparable success achieved this past season by current Newcastle manager Steve Bruce.
