A plethora of Everton fans are calling for Benitez’s head and club chiefs could soon wield the axe.
If the Red Devils opt to bring in Rodgers, the appointment could be deemed as unacceptable by fans after he, too, spent time in charge of Liverpool.

Rodgers is clearly an adroit manager, but he could arrive with gratuitous pressure on his shoulders courtesy of his Merseyside links.
