Vitor Pereira rules himself out of running for Everton job

Vitor Pereira rules himself out of running for Everton job

Pereira's name has been a prominent one in rumours surrounding Silva's replacement. Negotiations could be finalised in the next few days, although it is not as simple as that. Conversations between both parties are already advancing. But he added that he is committed to his project with Shanghai SIPG in the Chinese Super League. With Pereira ruled out, Unai Emery or Ralf Rangnick might be next.

"At this moment I am still the coach of SIPG, a club close to my heart in a country that is growing enormously in football".

Pereira held talks with the Everton hierarchy and it was hoped that an appointment would be made by the end of this week on a two-and-a-half-year deal.

The decision cost Everton £4m in compensation to the Hertfordshire club. "It's a league I love and, yes, for sure, I would consider an opportunity in the future".
