Silva sacked

Silva before City away

Everton have confirmed that they have sacked manager Marco Silva after an underwhelming 18 months in charge at Goodison Park.

The Blues were handed a humiliating defeat at Anfield last night in a game that proved to be the final straw from the board – weeks after Silva had lost the fans’ confidence.

Silva had taken over from Sam Allardyce in the summer of 2018 and had been supported – mostly – by the financial clout of the Everton board. It was last summer’s transfer window which let him down, however, with Everton failing to secure (or replace) Kurt Zouma who had returned to Chelsea.

The Blues then agreed to sell Idrissa Gana Gueye and saw his replacement injured in his second appearance, but by the time Andre Gomes suffered an horrific injury at Goodison against Spurs, Silva’s time was up.

That was, however, a month ago.

Today Everton took almost 12 hours to sack a manager who turned up for work first thing in the morning, shortly over 2 years since the clumsy approach for Silva effectively ended his spell at Watford.

The BBC man (bibs, balls and cones) Duncan Ferguson takes over as temporary manager while Everton aim to appoint a fifth manager in four years.

What a time to be an Evertonian.
