Everton has fired their manager Marco Silva after the heavy 5-2 defeat against Liverpool in the Merseyside derby on Wednesday. “The Toffees” lost their last three games on top of losing 9 out of 15 from the start of the campaign. They’ve dropped into the relegation zone with only 14 pts from 15 games.
Everton looking to bring back Moyes?
Duncan Ferguson, who spent a total of 10 years on “Goodison Park”, will lead the team against Chelsea on Saturday, while the board settles on a new manager.
“Majority Shareholder Farhad Moshiri, Chairman Bill Kenwright and the Board of Directors would like to thank Marco for his service over the last 18 months and wish him well for the future.”
“Duncan Ferguson has taken temporary charge of the first team and will manage the side for the game against Chelsea on Saturday. The club aims to confirm a new permanent manager as swiftly as possible,” the club stated.
Farhad Moshiri, the majority shareholder of Everton, has released his third manager since taking over the club in February 2016. Ronald Koeman, Sam Allardyce, and now Marco Silva.
David Moyes, who managed Everton between 2002-2013, appears to be the favorite to take “The Toffees” wheel again, even though some fans seem to be wary about a potential return of the Scotsman. Other names linked to the job include Phil Neville, Mikel Arteta, and Eddie Howe.
