Sam Allardyce Told To Vacate Everton Within 24 Hours

Former England manager, Sam Allardyce has been asked to vacate his position as Everton manager within 24 hours with former Watford manager Marco Silva the preferred choice to replace him.

According to British tabloids, Big Sam is due to meet Everton’s majority shareholder Farhad Moshiri on Wednesday and will be told his six-month reign has come to an end and will be paid the vast majority of the final 12 months of his contract, estimated to be around £6m.

Everton attempted to bring Silva to Goodison Park last November when the Portuguese was at Watford.

The Toffees offered as much as £12m in compensation for Silva, only for Watford to rebuff their approach.

Allardyce secured an eighth-place finish for Everton in the Premier League after just two defeats in their final nine league matches.

When asked about his future on Monday, Allardyce told Sky Sports News: “It’s my job to turn that around. My job is to get better results for Everton, get better players, and play better. Then those fans enjoy their football a little bit more than they are at the moment.

“I’ve done all that I can, the backroom staff have done all that they can, and the players have done all that they can. In the January window, Farhad [Moshiri] backed us up with two very important signings [Theo Walcott and Cenk Tosun].

“Both have been successful in what they’ve done and it’s helped us get into the position we’re in. Who knows what’s going to happen next.

“The season’s finished and I’m going to have a meeting with Farhad this week and then I’m going on my holidays.”
