Everton fans not impressed as Shakespeare is sacked before Koeman

Leicester City decided to sack Craig Shakespeare on Tuesday following a run of one win in the Foxes’ last eight games in all competitions, and Everton fans are frustrated that their under-fire manager Ronald Koeman has outlasted him.

The east Midlands outfit’s 1-1 draw against West Bromwich Albion at the King Power Stadium on Monday night wasn’t enough to save the 53-year-old, whose former team lie just two places and two points below the Toffees in the table.

The Merseyside club’s 1-1 draw against Brighton and Hove Albion on Sunday means that they have won just two of their 10 matches this season in the Premier League and the group stages of the Europa League, which is seen by many as unacceptable considering the amount that was spent on new players during the summer.

Everton supporters were quick to have their say on Shakespeare’s sacking via social media, and while some said “Leicester City have more balls than Everton”, others praised them for “showing ambition” by getting rid of an underperforming manager.
