New Everton boss Rafael Benitez has felt support from fans living close by

New Everton manager Rafael Benitez claims he has felt strong support from fans living close to him following his appointment at Goodison Park. Some supporters apparently against the idea of the Toffees hiring the former Liverpool boss hung a threatening banner close to his home on the Wirral last month. That incident, which is being investigated by Merseyside Police, did not prevent the club bringing in the Spaniard as replacement for Carlo Ancelotti.
