It has been more than two weeks since heir search for a manager since has been long and incredibly varied.
But could Thomas Tuchel be the ideal candidate to replace the Dutchman at Goodison Park?
The Toffees reportedly have a four-man shortlist for the role which includes Atlético Madrid coach Diego Simeone, Watford manager Marco Silva, the out-of-work Sam Allardyce and current caretaker David Unsworth.
It's a muddled list made up of managers with wildly varied styles and only one is readily available – the semi-retired Allardyce.

The video above, made by uMAXIT, explains why Tuchel would be a good fit tactically.
