Sam Allardyce set for Everton exit

Sam Allardyce set for Everton exit

Everton will reportedly terminate the contract of manager Sam Allardyce within the next 48 hours, with Marco Silva lined up as a replacement.

The 63-year-old was due to meet with major shareholder Farhad Moshiri at some stage this week where it was expected he would be informed that he will not be retained beyond the end of the current season.

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

This will be music to the ears of Everton supporters who for one reason or another do not believe the one-time England boss is good enough for them.

"All the rumours, gossip and miscalculating stories that the media are writing about what's happening between me and Wayne are absolute rubbish", Allardyce told the BBC after the 3-1 defeat.

On the plus side Allardyce's bank balance will reap of the rewards of an early pay-off, with a reported £6million set to hurled his way.

Allardyce said a meeting is planned with Everton majority owner Farhad Moshiri next week when some reports suggest he will be sacked.

Simply press the thumbs up if you think the player should stay, and the thumbs if you think they should pack their bags.

"Had it not been for the unwarranted approach by a Premier League rival for his services we would have continued to prosper under his leadership", the club's statement read.

Allardyce said he dd not know whether he would still be in charge come next season - Everton have already made changes with Marcel Brands the technical director of Dutch champions PSV Eindhoven telling the Sunday Mirror he will be director of football.

"Go and see what he (Allardyce) was doing when he was 40 years old, or see what he was doing in his first seven seasons as a coach".
