Sam Allardyce And David Moyes Both On Verge Of Getting The Boot

Sam Allardyce And David Moyes Both On Verge Of Getting The Boot

Sam Allardyce and David Moyes are both set to depart the clubs which they helped retain Premier League status this season.

The Guardian reports that despite Everton finishing eighth in the league and him having signed an 18-month contract when he was appointed in November, Allardyce will be shown the door at Goodison Park.

It's said that Marco Silva, the former Watford manager who was initially favourite to replace Ronald Koeman when he was sacked in October, is the preferred candidate.

Silva was sacked by Watford in January following a downturn in results. A statement from the club at the time blamed an "unwarranted approach by a Premier League rival" for Silva as being the catalyst for the destabilisation of his tenure.

According to the BBC, David Moyes - who was named West Ham manager in early November with the club in relegation trouble - will make an exit.

It's reported that Moyes met with the club hierarchy on Monday to discuss his future. Though a decision is yet to be made, it is expected that his services will not be retained.

Moyes's contract with West Ham expired following Sunday's 3-1 win against Everton. Current Shakhtar Donetsk manager Paulo Fonseca is the favourite to replace Moyes.
