English Premier League side, Everton have sacked manager, Rafa Benitez after a disappointing six-month reign at Goodison Park.

The club announced Benitez’s sacking in a Sunday statement.

“Everton Football Club can confirm the departure of Rafa Benitez as First Team manager.

“Benitez, who joined Everton in June 2021, has left the Club with immediate effect.

“An update on a permanent replacement will be made in due course.”
