Sam Allardyce sacked as Everton manager: Club

Allardyce went on to lead the Toffees clear of safety to an 8th place finish, however fans never took to the former England boss, and now Everton have opted to cut short his tenure as they look to move in a different direction, with Silva expected to bag the job.

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

Everton fans will no doubt be enthused to learn that Sam Allardyce has hereby officially left his role as manager of the club.

Ironically, Allardyce arrived just as Unsworth had overseen the most encouraging performance of the season - a 4-0 win over West Ham - and the controversy of who deserved credit for that victory summed up the divisiveness of reign.

"On behalf of the Chairman, Board of Directors and Mr (Farhad) Moshiri, I'd like to thank Sam for the job he has done at Everton over the last seven months", Everton's newly-announced CEO Denise Barrett-Baxendale said on the club's website. "Again, we'd like to place on record our honest thanks to Sam for his work with us over the last few months and wish him well for the future".

Also, CEO Douglas Scott Ewert sold 55,005 shares of the company's stock in a transaction that occurred on Monday, March 26th. Following the sale, the chief executive officer now owns 326,850 shares in the company, valued at approximately $7,733,271.


The 40-year-old Portuguese was owner Farhad Moshiri's first choice when he dismissed Dutchman Ronald Koeman after a disastrous start to the campaign.

Speaking after being recognised by the LMA for his 1000 games in management, Allardyce said: "I'm shocked, disappointed and disgusted that the football club didn't have the decency to tell me, my Director of Football and my staff about the changes".

As part of the questionnaire, supporters were asked whether they agree with the statement of "I have a high level of trust in the current manager and coaching staff at Everton e.g.in making the right decisions to get the best out of the team".

The decision comes after crunch meetings between the club's board earlier this week.
