Everton have sacked manager Ronald Koeman

The news comes following the Toffees’ 5-2 defeat by Arsenal on Sunday.

EVERTON AND MANAGER Ronald Koeman have parted ways, the club have confirmed.

The news comes after the Toffees’ 5-2 defeat by Arsenal on Sunday left them in the relegation zone.

Everton spent heavily in the summer, with big-name signings including Wayne Rooney, Michael Keane and Gylfi Sigurðsson arriving at the club.

However, Koeman’s side struggled to replace the goals provided by star striker Romelu Lukaku, who left for Man United in the summer.

And the poor results have ultimately cost Koeman his job, with the Toffees having picked up just eight points and two wins from their opening nine Premier League games.

A statement issued today by Everton confirming the news read as follows: “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.”
