Sean Dyche and David Unsworth favourites to manage Everton
Everton sack Ronald Koeman and now go in search of a successor
October 24th, 2017
Ronald Koeman enjoyed a decent opening season at Everton although it’s been pretty pitiful for the Toffees this term and that is why the Merseyside club decided to part company with the Dutchman.
A club statement read: “Everton football club can confirm that Ronald Koeman has left the club. Chairman Bill Kenwright, the board of directors and major shareholder Farhad Moshiri would all like to express their gratitude to Ronald for the service he has given to the club over the past 16 months and for guiding the club to seventh place in last season’s Premier League campaign.”
The search now takes place for a successor and David Unsworth is hoping he gets the nod at the club, with the caretaker manager taking charge of the team for Wednesday’s EFL Cup match at Chelsea.
Sean Dyche is favourite and could be persuaded to leave Burnley, with the manager having impressed with the Lancashire outfit by keeping them in the Premier League and the Clarets did win at Goodison Park this term.
Former Borussia Dortmund manager Thomas Tuchel has also been linked with the vacant post, although Everton might wait and see whether Unsworth can have a short-term impact before making a decision.
