Everton end ties with Allardyce

Everton Announces Departure of Sam Allardyce

While the former England boss successfully delivered Premier League safety and a solid eighth place finish, supporters had grown exhausted of the club's inconsistency and poor style of football.

His managerial style never endeared him to Everton supporters, however, and there was mounting hostility towards Allardyce over the final months of the season. We conducted ourselves amicably but I expressed a disappointment with how it got out.

Sam Allardyce was on Wednesday sacked as manager of Premier League side Everton after just six months and despite guiding them away from trouble to an eighth-placed finish, the club announced.

But, speaking exclusively to talkSPORT 24 hours after his departure, Big Sam said he felt the majority of fans were pleased with his work in stabilising the club, and would have been happy for him to continue.

According to a report from The Guardian, Everton have received a boost in their hopes of appointing Marco Silva as Sam Allardyce's successor as the Portuguese is not now interested in taking the West Ham job. The recruitment last summer was overwhelmingly poor and this resulted in a extremely hard season, with the style and tactics used under Allardyce proving very hard to watch.

That's according to Sky Sports who say the Toffees' dispute with Watford over Marco Silva could cost them £8m alone.

Benitez - who guided Newcastle to a 10th-placed finish in the Premier League - has a £ 6million release clause in his contract. Benitez's representatives are in discussions with managing director Lee Charnley.

Allardyce was under contract at Everton until 2019, but his time has been cut short after he grew unpopular with the fan base, leading the club to return to discussing terms with Silva.

"On behalf of the chairman, board of directors and [owner Farhad] Moshiri, I'd like to thank Sam for the job he has done at Everton over the last seven months", CEO Denise Barrett-Baxendale said in a statement.

It is understood that should Everton appoint Silva this time they anticipate having to pay Watford substantial compensation, even though the Hornets subsequently sacked him. That followed what Watford claimed was an "unwarranted approach" by Everton that affected the focus and results of the Portuguese coach.
