Everton sack Ronald Koeman following poor start to the season

Everton has sacked Ronald Koeman following Sunday’s 5-2 defeat by Arsenal, the club has confirmed.

The 54-year-old Dutchman insisted in the wake of the Goodison Park loss that he still believed he was the right man to lead the club.

Koeman leaves after 16 months in charge and the decision will be greeted with delight by Evertonians, who never warmed to him. He faced mounting criticism after results continued to tail off after he oversaw a £150million spend during the summer with director of football Steve Walsh.

A club statement issued on Monday afternoon read: “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.”

Koeman will be the second manager to lose his job this season after Leicester also dismissed Craig Shakespeare for an unsavory start to the season.

Already, David Moyes, Carlo Ancelotti and many other managers have been mooted with talks being at advanced stages with former coach Moyes.

Everton is currently languishing in the 18th position after 9 rounds of matches and haven’t won any of their Europa League games also.
