Everton sack Sam Alladyce

0

Sam Allardyce’s reign as Everton manager has approached its end after less than six months in charge at Goodison Park.

Sky Sports reported yesterday that the 63-year-old will be informed at a meeting with majority shareholder Farhad Moshiri as early as Wednesday, that his services are no longer required as Moshiri reacts to fans’ growing discontent with the former England manager.

Allardyce’s rudimentary style of play has proved deeply unpopular despite lifting the Toffees from 13th in the Premier League when he was appointed in November to finish eighth.

Despite signing an 18-month deal, Allardyce seemed resigned to his fate after Sunday’s 3-1 defeat at former club West Ham, during which Everton supporters called for his sack.

Deputy CEO of Everton, Denise Barrett-Baxendale, said: “On behalf of the chairman, board of directors and Mr Moshiri, I’d like to thank Sam for the job he has done at Everton over the last seven months.

“Sam was brought in at a challenging time last season to provide us with some stability and we are grateful to him for doing that.

“However, we have made the decision that, as part of our longer-term plan, we will be appointing a new manager this summer and will be commencing this process immediately.

“Again, we’d like to place on record our sincere thanks to Sam for his work with us over the last few months and wish him well for the future.”
