Rangers boss, Steven Gerrard, has said he could never consider taking the Everton job.
Carlo Ancelotti’s departure for Real Madrid saw a host of coaches linked with the Goodison Park job, including Gerrard, with the Liverpool icon impressing at Rangers.
“I was very shocked and surprised that my name was linked to the job,” he told ESPN.
Gerrard is unsurprised seeing Rafa Benitez taking the Liverpool job.
Everton have since appointed Rafa Benitez as their new manager, much to the furore of their supporters given the Spaniard’s close ties with arch-rivals Liverpool.
“Rafa wasn’t born in the city, he’s not a red through-and-through and he never played against Everton for 20 years and competed against them, so I think it’s a very different situation [to mine],’ Gerrard added.
‘Rafa is his own man and will make his own professional decisions, so there’s no surprise that he wanted to get back in the Premier League at a big club and have the opportunity to compete against all the top teams in the league, so I wasn’t very shocked and surprised at all in all honesty.”
“I don’t know where it came from, whether it was paper talk or if there was any truth in it, I’m not sure.
“‘[Managing Everton] is never a possibility as far as I’m concerned.”
