Everton manager Ronald Koeman is coming under increasing pressure at Goodison Park following yet another defeat this season.
The Blues have won just three of their 11 games this season, one of which was the victory against Hajduk Split in the club’s Europa League qualifier back in August.
They have gone on to lose four of their last five Premier League games, and are yet to win in the Europa League group stage. Their results leave two places and two points above the drop zone, and leave Ronald Koeman’s job hanging in the balance.
The at the end of Sunday’s defeat to Burnley, the Everton Faithful inside Goodison Park voiced their frustrations as boo’s rang around the famous old stadium.
Everton are publicly backing their manager, Football Faithful sources tell us that members of the Everton board have ‘serious concerns’ about Koemans ability to lead the club going forward.
The Sun are also reporting that Koeman is now ‘on the verge of being sacked’ – while the bookmakers also feel the same. The odds on Koeman being the next manager to lose his job have shortened from 6/4 to 8/15 in less than 24 hours.
Koeman himself has even admitted that his future is out of his control:
“It is not in my hands but I try to get the best out of the players.
“If there is no commitment and no aggression that is maybe a reason to think about my future but I thank the players for their commitment today.
“I can’t complain about my players today, they did everything. Maybe we could create more but it is not so easy against Burnley.”
However, Everton owner Farhad Moshiri has told Sky Sports presenter Jim White that he fully supports Koeman:
“We’re in a bad moment – but these are early days and Koeman has my total support”
