Everton have announced that Ronald Koeman has left the club following yesterday’s dismal defeat to Arsenal.
The Blues have parted company with the Dutchman after just 15 months in charge after he led the club to a paltry eight points from the opening nine games. The run of results leaves Everton in the the relegation zone as well as bottom of their Europa League group.
A club statement released on the club website this afternoon reads:
Everton Football Club can confirm that Ronald Koeman has left the Club.
Chairman Bill Kenwright, the Board of Directors and Major Shareholder Farhad 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.
Former player David Unsworth has been placed in temporary charge on the club.
