Everton sack Ronald Koeman
To no one’s surprise, Everton have sacked Ronald Koeman.
The writing was very clearly on the wall for Koeman after a disastrous couple of games for the Toffees.
Everton were doing poorly long before matches against Lyon and Arsenal ensured they picked up two seriously damaging home results.
Lyon & Arsenal defeats the final straw
Lyon won at Goodison Park in the Europa League, amid ugly scenes involving Ashley Williams and a supporter.
Arsenal ran riot on Sunday at Everton, scoring five goals and it could well have been a lot more.
Everton announced Koeman’s departure and Toffees supporters have reacted in raptures to the news.
Ultimately, as the empty seats in the final stages of the defeat to Arsenal showed, there was simply no way back for Koeman.
Everton are 18th in the Premier League
Even after guiding Everton into the Europa League.
The big summer spend conducted by Everton, Koeman and Steve Walsh, heaped the pressure on the Dutch manager.
Koeman leaves the club in 18th, in serious danger of relegation.
No wonder Everton fans are applauding the move.
Don't feel delighted at the news. Wanted Koeman to do well. But this is the right decision #EFC

Not surprised at Koeman sacking. I think the cameraman didn’t help showing Kenwright’s face after the 5th goal yesterday.

Gutted about Koeman; but it needed doing. I can see Unsworth or big Duncan taking over @Everton

Koeman simply wasn’t good enough for us.

Koeman sacked having spent 150 million any other job he would be put in prison for wasting that much money

I think Koeman is decent. But I agree not buying any pacy players when they clearly need it was weird for me.
