Experienced manager Louis van Gaal has been placed as the third favourite to become the next Everton manager, according to the latest bookmakers’ odds.
Sky Bet have priced the 66-year-old at 7/2 on Monday afternoon to be the main selected to replace Ronald Koeman at Goodison Park.
The Dutchman is amongst a host of experienced managers who are also being linked with the top job on Merseyside with current Burnley boss Sean Dyche at 10/1 and Sam Allardyce, Martin O’Neill and Tony Pulis all at 20/1.
Watford manager Marco Silva still leads the way as the favourite for the Everton managerial role at 11/10 behind the club’s current caretaker boss David Unsworth at 5/2.
Van Gaal has already experienced life in the Premier League during his three-year spell at Manchester United where he managed to secure the FA Cup in his final campaign for the club.
The Dutchman is renowned for his fantastic spell at Ajax back in the nineties where he guided them to the Champions League title during the 1994-95 season.
The charismatic manager also led the Netherlands national team to the semi-finals of the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.
Van Gaal has also enjoyed domestic success with European giants Barcelona and Bayern Munich during his long managerial career.
