Many Everton fans have been reacting on social media to reports by the Liverpool Echo, claiming that Marco Silva was not informed of his sacking until 7pm on Thursday night.

Silva had been at the club’s Finch Farm training complex for around 10 hours making preparations for Saturday’s visit of Chelsea to Goodison Park, feeling he would still be in charge for the match.

The Portuguese was informed of his sacking inside 24 hours of losing 5-2 to Liverpool in the Merseyside Derby at Anfield, which left the club inside the Premier League relegation places on 14 points after 15 games.

Silva is thought to have still been at Finch Farm until long after receiving the club’s decision to terminate his contract after 18 months in charge, as the Portuguese cleared out his belongings and said his farewells.

Majority owner Farhad Moshiri and the club’s Board of Directors had descended on Finch Farm earlier in the day to discuss Silva’s position, where talks lasted five hours and included a meeting with the first-team squad.

Did Moshiri make the right decision firing Silva?

Yes, it was time for Silva to leave

He should have given Silva more time

The Echo also claim the players left Finch Farm still believing that Silva would be in charge come Friday morning after speaking with Moshiri, who later delivered the news to our now former boss that his services are no longer required.

Here are some of the messages shared as fans reacted to the Echo’s report on the managerial situation at Everton…

In other Everton news, fans have been reacting to reports that the club want a title-winning head coach to replace Silva, having drawn up a four-man shortlist.
