Everton Announces Departure of Sam Allardyce

Everton Announces Departure of Sam Allardyce

The 63-year-old came out of retirement last year to take charge of an Everton side under desperate circumstances and guided them to an eighth place finish in the Premier League.

But their style of football was seen as extremely divisive among fans and it is no shock to see the former England manager shown the door.

Ahead of the meeting, Allardyce has hit out at a lack of "decency" after Everton pushed ahead with boardroom changes by appointing Professor Denise Barrett-Baxendale to replace Robert Elstone as CEO with Dr Keith Harris becoming deputy chairman without his knowledge.

Everton said in a statement: "We have made the decision, as part of our longer-term plan, we will be appointing a new manager".

This could have been the day Sam Allardyce announced his England World Cup squad, instead he's been sacked by Everton.

Everton tried to bring Silva in from Watford before settling on Allardyce as the replacement for the fired Ronald Koeman.

Allardyce was brought in by the Toffees to fix their worrying start to the season which had left them facing a realistic prospect of relegation.

Silva is favourite to take over at Goodison.

"He nearly went to the Premier League in November after Everton failed to extract Marco Silva from Watford they then had a meeting with Fonseca, offered him the job, he accepted but Shakhtar wouldn't let him go at that point".

Watford "remain furious" that Everton's interest past year unsettled Silva and a poor run of form led to his sacking in January.

The next manager will be the third appointed by Moshiri since he acquired a 49.9 per cent stake in Everton in February 2016. That followed what Watford claimed was an "unwarranted approach" by Everton that affected the focus and results of the Portuguese coach.

The club refused to let Silva speak to the Merseysiders, and a drastic tailing off in form ensued - with the club winning just one of the next 11 games and Silva was subsequently sacked.
