Everton Fc confirms sacking manager Marco Silva

English premiership club Everton confirms the sacking of their manager "Marco Silva" after 18 months as coach at Goodison Park on Thursday after a humiliating defeat in the hands of Liverpool in a 5-2 thrashing.
"Everton Football Club can confirm that manager Marco Silva has left the Club," Everton said in a statement.
"Duncan Ferguson has taken temporary charge of the first team and will manage the side for the game against Chelsea on Saturday."
Media reports revealed that David Moyes has been linked with a return to Goodison as a Marco Silva's successor as a stop-gap until the end of the season.
A run of eight defeats in 11 games sealed Silva's fate after the club assembled a squad that was expected to challenge for European qualification at the other end of the table.
Earlier on, Everton Fc fans called for the Portuguese coach to be sacked after a 2-0 home defeat to Norwich on November 23.
He was however handed a reprieve and an improved performance despite conceding a late winner to Leicester in a 2-1 defeat last weekend saw him limp into the Merseyside derby.
So far "Marco Silva" becomes the fourth Premier League manager to be sacked in little over two weeks after Tottenham, Arsenal and Watford also fired Mauricio Pochettino, Unai Emery and Quique Sanchez Flores respectively.
The former Hull and Watford boss becomes the fourth managerial casualty since Farhad Moshiri took charge of Everton in 2016 after Roberto Martinez, Ronald Koeman and Sam Allardyce.
Marco Silva was supported with over £100 million ($130 million) for transfer this season on the likes Richarlison, Lucas Digne, Andre Gomes, Yeray Mina, Moise Kean and Alex Iwobi over the past two summers.
