Jorge Jesus emerges as potential replacement for Marco Silva – Telegraph


Change is coming

Flamengo manager Jorge Jesus has reportedly emerged as a candidate for the Everton job should they sack Marco Silva in the coming weeks.

It’s been a very poor start to the season for Marco Silva and Everton.

Despite having a relatively kind set of fixtures, the Toffees are sat 16th in the Premier League table.

They’ve only won four games so far in the campaign, and have suffered losses to all three promoted sides.

Their latest defeat came at the hands of Norwich last weekend, who were bottom of the table going into that game.

That defeat has seemingly sealed Marco Silva’s fate, with fans wanting him sacked as soon as possible.

However, due to a lack of obvious managerial talent available, Silva looks set to keep his job for the Leicester game this weekend and potentially the Merseyside derby.

Though, a new name has emerged over the past couple of days.

Jorge Jesus to Goodison?

According to the Telegraph, Flamengo manager Jorge Jesus has emerged as a candidate.

Their report claims: ‘Reports emerged in Portugal on Tuesday evening that Jesus could be a candidate and Telegraph Sport understands that his name has been put forward as a possibility.’ 

They do explain that due to Flamengo’s involvement in the Club World Cup, any move could be delayed.

Other than that, details of a move for Jesus are rather sparse.

Jesus is well known for his time as Benfica manager, where he guided them to three league titles, six domestic cups and two Europa League finals.

Most recently though, he has been in charge of Brazilian side Flamengo and he’s done a pretty amazing job.

Jesus guided his side to the Copa Libertadores final last weekend – the South American equivalent to the Champions League – where his side completed a stunning comeback to beat River Plate.

They were then confirmed as Brazilian Serie A champions just a day later.
