​Everton legend Gray: We don't want Benitez

Everton legend Andy Gray does not want former Liverpool boss Rafa Benitez at his club.

Marco Silva is under extreme pressure to keep his job with the Toffees.

They put in a spirited display against Leicester City on Sunday, but lost 2-1 after conceding a last-minute goal.

Benitez, who is managing in China, is among the bookmaker favourites for the job.

Speaking on beinSPORTS, Gray said about Benitez: "I don't want him. He's a pragmatist. I think Everton need someone who's going to inspire them.

"Somebody needs to come in and lift the place. I don't think Rafa would lift the place.

"He would stabilise it, but I watched Newcastle last season, you wouldn't want to watch that every week."
