Everton news: Sam Allardyce goes on HUGE rant at Toffees before sacking
Everton appointed Allardyce as manager earlier in the season, with the former England boss successfully keeping them in the Premier League.
However, the 63-year-old looks set to be nearing the axe with Marco Silva in line to take over.
Everton yesterday made the bold decision to announce a major overhaul of their board while Allardyce was at the the League Manager’s Association 26th Annual Awards Dinner on Tuesday night.
Allardyce has responded to the news in angry fashion.
And the Everton manager has also hinted he expects to be axed soon with a meeting due to take place with owner Farad Moshiri today.
He said: “I’m shocked, disappointed and disgusted that the football club didn’t have the decency to tell me, my Director of Football and my staff about the changes.
“They must have been in the pipeline for a considerable time but no-one thought to tell me and my staff. I’m pretty disgusted.
“I came into the football club with the team struggling and we have finished 8th in the table.
“I’m more than happy with what myself, my staff and the players have achieved from when I came in.
“I will be meeting Farhad on Wednesday morning to discuss what happens next but I’m not expecting a long meeting.”
Everton are expected to turn to Silva if they opt to axe Allardyce.
But that appointment will not be without its complications.
Watford are threatening to sue Everton for tapping up their former boss, who they parted company with in January.
At the time, the Hornets released a statement saying: “The club is convinced the appointment of Silva was the right one and 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 catalyst for this decision is that unwarranted approach, something which the board believes has seen a significant deterioration in both focus and results to the point where the long-term future of Watford has been jeopardised.
“For the security and success of the football club, the board believes it has to make a change.”
