Everton have sacked Marco Silva ahead of Saturday’s Premier clash between Chelsea and Everton at Goodison Park.
The Portuguese was sacked after a poor start to the season that has seen the Toffees fall into the bottom three.
Former Everton striker and current first-team coach Duncan Ferguson has been placed in caretaker charge for Saturday’s game against Chelsea at Goodison Park.
A statement on the club’s website read: “Everton Football Club can confirm that manager Marco Silva has left the Club.
“Majority Shareholder Farhad Moshiri, chairman Bill Kenwright and the board of directors would like to thank Marco for his service over the last 18 months and wish him well for the future.
“Duncan Ferguson has taken temporary charge of the first team and will manage the side for the game against Chelsea on Saturday.
“The club aims to confirm a new permanent manager as swiftly as possible.”
