Everton have sacked manager Rafa Benitez
Talks on the specific details of his departure are continuing but understand that the decision for the Spaniard to leave the club is mutual.
Everton have sacked manager Rafa Benitez which is no surprise to the Toffee supporters who have been calling for his dismissal since December 2021.
It was a ninth defeat in the last 13 Premier League games for the Toffees and the mood appeared to have been souring for several weeks. Fans had also begun to turn on Benitez, brandishing banners, while one irate supporter even tried to confront the Spaniard at Carrow Road.
