Marcus Bent reckons that Everton should stay clear of Nuno Espirito Santo, suggesting that the Toffees should look towards appointing a more attacking coach.
Santo did an impressive job at Wolves, taking them from the Championship to consecutive seventh-place finishes, but left his position before their final game of the season against Manchester United.

But whilst Santo has a proven track record in the Premier League and in Europe, he generally builds from the back, with his Wolves side at their most devastating when playing on the counter-attack.
But even when the Midlands outfit were at their best, they were often involved in low-scoring games, and had a habit of failing to score in the first half of Premier League matches, something Santo struggled to fix.
With that in mind, Bent, who spent two seasons at Everton as a player, doesn’t think he would fit the bill at Goodison Park.
He exclusively told This is Futbol:
“He’s been linked with Crystal Palace, but it broke down. That was his backroom staff, and he threw his toys out the pram as it’s been stated on social media.
“But he did well at Wolves, but Everton are a bigger club, they have more money, better players, fan base.
“But he’s not really attack-minded, and we need to go for a manager that offers a style of football that Everton and the fans are looking for.”
