Everton has parted ways with manager Sam Allardyce after six months in charge.
The 63-year-old replaced Ronald Koeman who was sacked last year as they were lying in the 13th place with a seven match winless streak.
Allardyce has been heavily criticised by fans for his management and Everton’s style of play since he took over and the club.
In a statement by the club, it read: “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. Sam was brought in at a challenging time last season to provide us with some stability and we are grateful to him for doing that.”
“However, we have made the decision that, as part of our longer-term plan, we will be appointing a new manager this summer and will be commencing this process immediately. Again, we’d like to place on record our sincere thanks to Sam for his work with us over the last few months and wish him well for the future.”
It will be recalled that Allardyce was also sacked as England manager in less than six months after he was involved in a fixing scandal.
