Koeman gets the axe after Series of bad performances by Everton.


Ronald Koeman have been relieved off his duties at Everton after Sunday’s 5-2 home defeat to Arsenal which left them with just two wins from their first nine Premier League games.

The former Southampton Manager was backed heavily during the transfer window, as Everton spent a reported £142 million on new players, but he has failed to deliver results this season and leaves the club 18th in the table.

The Merseyside club have flattered to deceive despite showing some early signs of promise, with the Toffees winning just once in the league since earning a promising 1-1 draw at title-hopefuls Manchester City in their second game of the season.

“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.”

The 54-year-old won 19 and lost 16 of his 47 top-flight games at the helm is the third Premier League manager to get the boot in 2017-18, following compatriot Frank de Boer’s departure from Palace and Craig Shakespeare’s dismissal at Leicester City.
