11 months ago

Thursday night has seen yet another Premier League manager get his marching orders.

Everton have sacked Marco Silva.

The Everton forcing him out after only 18 months in the job.

That makes him the fourth Premier League manager in 16 days to go after Watford sacked Quique Sanchez Flores on Sunday.

This followed the Arsenal fans striking again, forcing manager Unai Emery out of the club.

Mauricio Pochettino the other one to leave and spark this four going in 16 days.

There are now only 10 Premier League clubs of the 17 that ended the 2018/19 season (and didn’t get relegated) who still have the same manager.

The following having departed:

Chris Hughton (Brighton)

Maurizio Sarri (Chelsea)

Rafa Benitez (Newcastle United)

Javi Gracia (Watford)

Mauricio Pochettino (Spurs)

Unai Emery (Arsenal)

Quique Sanchez Flores (Watford)

Marco Silva (Everton)

Back to and including May 2016, it will mean Everton have had five different managers in just over three and a half years, when they make their next appointment.

Official Everton statement:

‘Everton Football Club can confirm that manager Marco Silva has left the Club.

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.’
