Marco Silva has been sacked by Everton after 18 months as manager due to the club’s premier league standing in the relegation zone and the 5-2 humiliation by Liverpool on Wednesday.

Silva, who took charge on May 2018, won 24 and also lost 24 out of 60 games.

He is the fourth manager to be sacked by Everton since Roberto Martinez was sacked in May 2016.

Former Everton manager David Moyes hasĀ been linked as a temporary replacement but reports suggest that this appointment has been rejected by many due to his previous poor performance in his 11 years as Everton manager.

His possible return also means former Everton striker, Tim Cahill will return as his assistant.

Moyes was sacked in 2013 and he moved to Manchester United where he didn’t last long as well. He moved to Real Sociedad and was dismissed before he became Sunderland manager where the club ended up in Premier league relegation.

The 56-year-old Scot also had a short spell at West Ham and now Everton are reportedly considering bringing him back on interim basis.

But many fans see his reappointment at Everton as a very bad idea due to his largely unimpressive record.

However, it all boils down to majority shareholder Farhad Moshiri and his boardroom colleagues who will have the final say on whether he will be appointed or not.
