What The Papers Say - 24 October


The views on this page are taken from the local and national media and do not necessarily reflect the views of Everton.

Today's papers are awash with speculation about who will replace Ronald Koeman in the Goodison Park hotseat.

Burnley boss Sean Dyche is heavily linked with the post, while Thomas Tuchel, formerly in charge at Borussia Dortmund, Italian Carlo Ancelotti and Toffees' Under-23 manager David Unsworth are all reported to be in the frame for the job.

Watford's Portuguese manager Marco Silva is also mentioned as a possible successor to Koeman, a suggestion endorsed by Jamie Carragher in the Daily Telegraph.

Former Manchester United player Ryan Giggs' declaration of interest in managing the Toffees also features across a number of publications.

The Daily Mail, Daily Star and Liverpool Echo all reflect on Dutchman Koeman's 16 months at the Club's helm – with the Echo also one of the papers to report on Dyche's admission that he is "flattered" to be talked about as a potential Toffees boss.

And the local paper suggests Unsworth will remain in charge at least until next month's international break, a period which encompasses four matches in three competitions – against Chelsea, Leicester City, Lyon and Watford.
