Everton fires Rafa Benitez, six months after his appointment

Everton fires Rafa Benitez, six months after his appointment

Rafa Benitez was fired by Everton after 200 days in charge on Sunday with a brutal 40-word statement that offered no thanks to the manager whose appointment was always contentious with fans.

The Spaniard never overcame his successful association with Liverpool, whose stadium is only a mile (1.6 kilometers) from Goodison Park across Stanley Park, and his position became increasingly untenable as Everton sunk closer to the relegation zone.

Everton has only one win in 13 league matches under Benitez, scoring 12 goals and conceding 27 in that time, although key striker Dominic Calvert-Lewin has only just returned from four months out injured to play two matches.

Benitez’s name was chanted at Anfield within minutes after the announcement by Liverpool fans during their match against Brentford on Sunday afternoon.

The end-game came for Everton with a 2-1 loss on Saturday to a team in the relegation zone — Norwich — which left Everton six points in front of the eastern England side.

“Everton Football Club can confirm the departure of Rafael Benitez as first-team manager,” the club said in a statement. “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.”

However delighted Everton supporters are to see Benitez’s departure, the ownership will also remain in their sights.
