Everton sack Sam Allardyce after six-month stint as manager

Allardyce out as Everton manager after 7 months

Allardyce out as Everton manager after 7 months

Following Allardyce's exit, Everton's new chief executive 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".

Former England manager Sam Allardyce has left Everton, despite ensuring the club's Premier League status remained in tact.

A dismal start to the season under Ronald Koeman had Everton fearing being sucked into a relegation battle but stability and a push towards the Europa League spots did not placate the Everton support after Allardyce was given an 18-month contract.

He failed to find the net at all after the turn of the year and became frustrated with Allardyce's agricultural tactics, so much so that he was prepared to call time on his Premier League career for a move overseas.

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

According to a report from The Guardian, Everton have received a boost in their hopes of appointing Marco Silva as Sam Allardyce's successor as the Portuguese is not now interested in taking the West Ham job.

Speaking to Talksport on Thursday, the 63-year-old said: "Something as delicate as that, whether you're parting company or going to have a meeting on it, is something you want to be confidential and not out in the open before it happens". "Generally there's no smoke without fire".

Paulo Fonseca the Shaktar Donetsk is proving to be a highly coveted manager and has been linked with both clubs since the departures of both Moyes and Allardyce respectively.

"So these guys get fired right, they're gone, see you later, take care".

Allardyce, whose previous clubs include Bolton, Newcastle, Sunderland and Crystal Palace, landed his dream job with England in 2016 but that turned sour after only one match, with Allardyce stepping down following a newspaper sting. Silva is now favourite to take over, having been dismissed by Watford in January, with the Hornets blaming Everton's "unwarranted approach" for leading to a significant deterioration in results and focus.

Rooney last week agreed in principle to join DC United after just one year back at his boyhood club.
