Everton end ties with Allardyce

Everton end ties with Allardyce

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

"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". "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 managed an eighth-placed finish in the league this season, but Allardyce's style of play and form away from home failed to win support from the fanbase.

Former Watford and Hull City manager Marco Silva, who was Everton's first choice when Allardyce was appointed, has been tipped as his replacement.

Such friction has also been evident on the terraces during Allardyce's spell, with his dismissal on Wednesday serving to underline the extent to which he became a divisive presence in several different areas of the club.

Hired from PSV Eindhoven, where he spent eight years carving out a reputation for signing talented young players at bargain prices, Brands has replaced Steve Walsh as the link between Everton's manager and the club's hierarchy.

Everton director, Professor Denise Barrett-Baxendale said.

'They will need to have been within the pipeline for a substantial time however no-one thought to inform me and my workers.

"He nearly went to the Premier League in November after Everton failed to extract Marco Silva from Watford they then had a meeting with Fonseca, offered him the job, he accepted but Shakhtar wouldn't let him go at that point".

Everton are one of the clubs who can claim to be bigger than Watford, and it is no surprise Silva would want to move one step higher up the food chain. Perhaps worth remembering that Everton were undeniably stuttering but actually only 13th when he took the job back in November, having amassed 15 points from 14 games.

In the Premier League, Everton won 10 matches, lost six and drew eight under Allardyce, his reign ending with a 3-1 defeat by West Ham on the final day of the season.
