Everton have confirmed Ronald Koeman has left the club after a terrible start to the season.
The Dutchman was under increasing pressure before their 5-2 defeat to Arsenal on Sunday.
Everton confirmed the news on their Twitter account this afternoon:
That heavy loss leaves the Toffees in the Premier League relegation zone when much of the talk before the start of the season was a push towards the Champions League places.
The club spent over £120m on new signings in the summer, including £25m on Davy Klaasen and £40m on Gylfi Sigurdsson.
But the Merseysiders have won just once in the league since August and have lost heavily to Tottenham, Manchester United as well as that reverse against the Gunners on Sunday.
Everton are also bottom of their Europa League group with just one point from their three games.
The bookies’ favourites to replace Koeman at the moment are David Unsworth, David Moyes and Sean Dyche.
