Everton have officially sacked Rafa Benitez following Saturday’s 2-1 defeat at Norwich.

Everton have won just once in the Premier League since September and are 15th in the table, six points above the relegation zone.

Former Liverpool manager Benitez was appointed Everton boss last summer but the Spaniard has failed to win over the Goodison Park faithful.

Everton fans displayed a banner calling for his exit during Saturday’s 2-1 defeat at Norwich. The same banner was also unfurled at their 3-2 FA Cup third-round win at Hull.

Everton have lost nine of their past 13 league games, including a 4-1 home defeat by Merseyside rivals Liverpool and a 5-2 home defeat against relegation strugglers Watford.

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