Can Benitez arrival salvage Iwobi's muddled Everton career?

Despite supporters’ misgivings over the deal, the Spaniard’s Liverpool connection should be the least of fans and the Super Eagle’s worries

On the one hand, it’s pretty easy to understand why Everton fans were largely united in protestation before Rafael Benitez was appointed this week.

While some of those objections went disgracefully overboard, the Spaniard’s selection means he becomes only the second-ever manager to take charge of Liverpool and the Toffees.

129 years since William Edward Barclay, the former Newcastle United boss replaced Carlo Ancelotti in the dugout, following the latter’s return to Real Madrid, and now must help Everton bounce back from losing the most decorated manager in the club's history.
