Everton fans have become enraged on Twitter after it was reported that the club had approached Walter Mazzarri to replace the under-pressure Ronald Koeman as manager.
The Dutch boss has endured a tough start to the season despite spending big over the summer with his side winning just two of their opening seven Premier League games.
The Sun have since reported that Everton have made contact with Italian manager Mazzarri over potentially replacing Koeman.
It is understood that the ex-Watford boss is keen on becoming the next boss at Goodison Park and is on standby to fly into Merseyside for an interview should Koeman face the axe.
Everton fans on Twitter aren’t happy with the news and don’t think that the former Napoli boss would be any better than their current man at the helm.
Here is a selection of their tweets:
If they appoint him I’m done with them

Mazzarri had his contract terminated by Watford at the end of last season despite leading them to Premier League safety before he was replaced by Marco Silva.
Everton have had a tough run of fixtures to start off the season but things don’t exactly get better after the international break with Lyon, Arsenal and Chelsea all awaiting the out-of-form Merseysiders.
