Koeman admits he could be sacked by Everton


A 2-1 defeat to Lyon has piled further pressure onto the Toffees boss ahead of two difficult matches against Arsenal and Chelsea

Ronald Koeman concedes that his future is out his hands after Everton’s woeful start to the season continued with a 2-1 defeat to Lyon on Thursday.


The Toffees have now won just twice in their past 12 games and are rooted to the bottom of Europa League Group E after picking up just one point from their opening three matches in the competition.


They appeared to be heading for a point after Ashley Williams had cancelled out Nabil Fekir’s early opener, but Bertrand Traore flicked home with 15 minutes remaining to condemn Koeman’s side to yet another defeat.


The beleaguered Blues welcome Arsenal to Goodison Park on Sunday in a must-win game, but Koeman has cast doubt on his future by admitting that the board might well decide to get rid of him.


“Of course, if the team is not winning and the team is not performing but maybe they can, then it’s always the manager,” he told BT Sport .


“The final decision is by the board, it is not by myself. I’m strong, I’m trying to do everything and if the board thinks I’m not that right man on this position then they will tell me.”
