Everton have sacked manager Marco Silva.

 

This comes in the wake of the Toffees’ 5-2 derby defeat to Liverpool on Wednesday.

 

A statement from the club said “they aim to appoint a new manager as swiftly as possible.”

 

Silva was appointed manager back in May 2018, taking over from Sam Allardyce who was on an interim basis.

 

However, a poor start to the season has seen the Merseysiders lose nine of the fifteen league games so far. They currently lie 18th on the log and that has put the former Watford and Hull City manager under intense pressure.

 

Silva, 42, becomes the fourth manager to be dismissed from the Goodison hot seat since majority shareholder Farhad Moshiri bought a share in the club in February 2016.

 

Meanwhile, former manager David Moyes has emerged as the front runner to replace Silva.

 

The former Manchester United, Real Sociedad and Sunderland manager was in charge at Goodison Park for 11 years before leaving for United in 2013.
