Nuno Espirito Santo

are now the favorites to land the job.

The prospect of Benitez, who recently managed Chinese Super League club Dalian Professional, getting the job has been met with an unfavorable reaction from some of the club's fans. However, the 61-year-old remains a strong contender for majority shareholder Farhad Moshiri.
