'Disgusted' Sam Allardyce sacked by Everton

Sam Allardyce

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

Everton ended the season 8th on the Premier League log.

And he certainly steadied the ship, shoring up their leaky defence and grinding out some crucial results to guide the Merseyside club to an eight-place finish.

Despite a doing a solid job, the 63-year-old Allardyce had fallen out with a large majority of Everton's fans who were not impressed with his management style.

It is understood former Hull City and Watford boss Marco Silva is the main candidate to succeed Allardyce.

'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.

Everton were unwilling to pay a reported compensation fee of £15 million ($20 million) wanted by Watford for the Portuguese when Koeman was sacked.

Everton were unbeaten in their first six league matches under Allardyce and claimed their only Europa League win under the ex-Crystal Palace, Sunderland, Blackburn, West Ham, Bolton and Newcastle boss.

Speaking on April 27, he said: "We discussed plans for next season yesterday with Farhad Moshiri".

But after Everton finished the season in 8th, the club opted for a change of direction.

Professor Denise Barrett-Baxendale was promoted to chief executive and Allardyce said he was "disgusted" not to have been informed.

Reacting to those changes, 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".
