Everton sack manager Willie Kirk

Everton sack manager Willie Kirk after just two wins from first five matches in the Women’s Super League.

The 43-year-old was appointed in December 2018. His biggest success with the Toffees was the 2020 FA Cup final, when Everton lost to Manchester City at Wembley. In the last season, Kirk led Everton to the 5th place in WSL. After big investments on the women’s team before the season, the goal was to contest the favourites and qualify to the Women’s Champions League. With the arrival of some big names, (Toni Duggan, Hanna Bennison, Leonie Maier, etc.), that seemed like a reasonable expectation, but Everton already lost against Chelsea, Manchester City and Arsenal.

The frontrunner for the new Everton manager is former Lyon coach, Jean-Luc Vasseur, who left Lyon in April.

“I am thankful to the club for the opportunity that they gave me three years ago. During that time, we have made tremendous progress both on and off the pitch and I leave the club in a better place. Without a doubt, the highlight was the FA Cup final less than a year ago, a memory that will stay with me forever,” said Kirk after his dismissal.
