Ronald Koeman became the third Premier League managerial casualty of the season on Monday when he was sacked by Everton.
The 54-year-old Dutchman – who guided Everton to seventh in his first season in charge last term – paid the price for a desperate start to the season, despite having spent £140 million in the close season.
The last straw was the 5-2 defeat at the hands of Arsenal at Goodison Park at the weekend.
“Everton Football Club can confirm that Ronald Koeman has left the club,” read the club statement.
“Chairman Bill Kenwright, the board of directors and the majority shareholder Farhard 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.”
