Koeman sacked by Everton

Less than a week after getting the unanimous backing from the Everton board, Ronald Koeman has been sacked.

Sunday’s 5-2 home defeat to Arsenal seemed to be the final nail in a very-well nailed coffin for the Dutchman.

After spending £140m in the summer the Toffees expected more from the 54-year-old, but 47 games was enough at the end of the day.

A club statement reads… “Everton Football Club can confirm that Ronald Koeman has left the Club.

Chairman Bill Kenwright, the Board of Directors and Major Shareholder Farhad Moshiri would all like to express their gratitude to Ronald for the service he has given to the Club over the past 16 months and for guiding the Club to seventh place in last season’s Premier League campaign.”

He becomes the third Premier League managerial casualty of the season so far, after Frank de Boer left Crystal Palace and Craig Shakespeare was sacked by Leicester City.

Who will be next…?
