Fabio Cannavaro has previously praised Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp amid reports that he has been linked with taking the job with their bitter rivals Everton. The Italy World Cup winner is understood to have been interviewed by the Toffees’ hierarchy ahead of a potential appointment. 

Everton are seeking a new manager after ending Rafa Benitez’s tumultuous reign after just six months.  

The Spaniard oversaw a terrible run of form, reportedly fell out with key players and never won over the Goodison Park support.  

That he was a former Liverpool boss and an iconic figure across Stanley Park at Anfield was only part of Benitez’s issues at Everton.

According to the Telegraph, Cannavaro has been interviewed by Everton. Former Chelsea boss Frank Lampard is another contender. 

And 48-year-old has previously praised potential rival Klopp, claiming that he likes the German’s ‘mentality’.  

Speaking to Sky Sports News in 2020, Cannavaro – who was manager of Chinese club Guangzhou at the time – said of working in England: “I hope so. I watch every game in the Premier League and I like the ambience and culture of football in England. 

“I am in China to try to improve my system and idea within football. 

“I am at one of the best Asian clubs and of course, in the future, I’d like to try one experience in Europe. I want to try the challenge of European football. 

“I like the Klopp mentality but at the same time, I like the Pep culture about football because always we need intensity with and without the ball. 

“But you need to control the game and try to win. I have my system and I hope one day you will see.” 

Former defender Cannavaro lifted the World Cup as captain of Italy in 2006.  

He is best known for spells with Parma, Inter Milan, Real Madrid and Juventus in the 1990s and 2000s.

Having already taken in several managerial spells, Cannavaro would arrive at Goodison Park with plenty of experience.  

The Naples-born coach has spent most of his post-playing career in China. He has twice managed Guangzhou, leaving for the second time in September last year.  

There have also been spells the now defunct Tianjin Tianhai and the Saudi Arabian club Al-Nassr. 

He was briefly in charge of the China national team in 2019.
