London, ENGLAND: Everton has parted ways with its manager Ronald Koeman barely a day after losing 5-2 at home to Arsenal in the English Premier League match played on Sunday.

According reports by British media outlets, Koeman’s dismal was made public on Monday shortly after the club’s owners had met to decide the fate of the Dutch tactician.

Everton who spent £140m in the summer on new players has endured poor start to the season managing paltry eight points from nine matches leaving them rooted 18th in the table standings.

Koeman joined Everton last year from Southampton and would then guide the Toffees to finish seventh in the league, but poor outings this campaign has led to his unceremonious sacking.

He becomes the third manager be relieved of his duties after Frank de Boer left Crystal Palace and Craig Shakespeare was sacked by Leicester last week.
