Everton has fired Rafa Benitez after six months in the job.
The decision was made following a 2-1 defeat by Everton to Norwich City.
"Everton Football Club can confirm the departure of Rafael Benitez as first team manager," an Everton statement read. "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."
Benitez joined Everton in June, replacing Carlo Ancelotti, who left after 12 months in charge to join Real Madrid.
