Ronald Koeman replaced Roberto Martinez as the head coach of Everton a few days ago and now the Dutch coach has the task of pushing the Premier League club into the European spots of the top tier English League which the former coach Roberto Martinez failed to do.
In terms of high-profile players, the Spanish League is the one that receives most attention as the likes of: Messi, Neymar, Suarez, C.Ronaldo, Bale and Benzema are all competing in La Liga. Just by having all of these well-known performers is a reason of why Spain is considered to be as a competitive and attractive football destination.
However, when it comes to managers there is a league that is quickly becoming the spotlight and it’s the Premier League.
Jose Mourinho was recently announced as the new coach of Manchester United and he will be contending against the likes of: Pep Guardiola, Arsene Wenger, Jurgen Klopp and many other highly rated managers and teams in the English League.
It’s because of these reasons that Edwin van der Sar believes why Ronald Koeman will struggle coaching and having success in Everton as the retired shot-stopper said: “When you look at the names like Jurgen Klopp, Pep Guardiola, Jose Mourinho, Arsene Wenger then it will be a very tough season for him to do well at Everton. I would like to see him go in there because it would be very interesting. He does have a way of playing that is very interesting for England. He would be a very good manager, but the question is how he would do with the competition from the other teams.”
Edwin van der sar has experience performing in the Premier League after making a combined total of appearances of over 300 through his time spent wearing the Manchester United and Fulham jersey.
The retired Dutch player is certain that because of all the top managers that have been arriving in recent times will make it difficult for Ronald Koeman to have a successful spell with Everton.
