Vitor Pereria likely to throw name in hat should Rangers sack Giovanni van Bronckhorst after major development

Vitor Pereira is reportedly likely to throw his CV into the mix at Rangers should they decide to part ways with Giovanni van Bronckhorst.

According to the Daily Record (14 November, 16:08), the former FC Porto and Fenerbahce manager could fancy the Ibrox number-one role after he was sacked by Corinthians on 14 November.

The Portuguese has been a manager since 2004 and has managed in different countries, winning four league titles.

Right man for the job?

Pereira will come to the Ibrox with an impressive CV and also the title-winning knowhow – something that is desperately needed at the club.

However, the fact that he does not seem to be a manager on the rise may put off many in the boardroom at Rangers.

There’s a very good chance that they go down the route they did with Steven Gerrard – a young manager who’s got some hype about him and who has the eagerness to prove himself at a tougher job.

Pereira has won two league titles in Portugal, one in Greece and one in China, but does not have any experience of managing in Europe’s top five leagues.

Neither has he gone on to do wonders in Europe so we do not see him being the first choice even if van Bronckhorst is sacked.

That said, Everton did consider appointing him before they went for Rafa Benitez so he could be ready for a bigger job and only time will tell if they do end up going for him.
