Ronald Koeman has been given one month to save his Everton career by club officials, after the Toffees’ worrying start to the Premier League season.
Koeman needs positive results during the month of October, or will face the sack at the start of November, according to the Mirror.
The Toffees face Brighton, Arsenal and Leicester in the league during the month, but also play against Lyon at Goodison Park in the Europa League, and Chelsea in the League Cup.
The Dutchman spent almost £150m in the summer on new talent – and also secured the signature of £300,000-a-week Wayne Rooney.
The season started promisingly for Everton, when they defeated Stoke City on the opening day.
However, had it not been for a late Oumar Niasse double against Bournemouth, that would have remained as the clubs only success in the league to date.
Koeman’s side have failed to find the net in each of their last three games, against Chelsea, Manchester United and Spurs, respectively.
Luckily for the 54-year-old, officials at the club are keen to afford their manager a little more time to turn their fortunes around, after the summer spending spree.
