Former Liverpool manager Rafael Benitez is reportedly still in the frame to become Everton's next manager despite backlash from fans.
After it was reported that Everton owner Farhad Moshiri had held talks with the Spaniard, a number of Everton supporters expressed their angry feelings towards Benitez by putting up banners outside Goodison Park.
During his six-year spell with the Reds of Merseyside, Benitez won the club their fifth Champions League title and mostly angered Toffees supporters by calling Everton a small club in 2007.
Benitez would become the first manager to have been in charge of both Merseyside clubs and it is believed that the 60-year-old is confident that he can win over the Goodison Park faithful.
Benitez last managed in the Premier League between 2016 and 2019 when he was at the helm at Newcastle United.
