Ronald Koeman is at the risk of being thrown into the unemployment market in the coming days.

Despite the huge funds made available to Koeman to get the needed personnel for the season, the Dutch Coach has failed to get desirable results on the pitch and it is the thinking of some that his sack letter is being typed.

Though the Everton hierarchy has given Koeman the infamous vote-of-confidence, one of the few managers to win the Premier League, Chris Sutton believes Koeman could be sacked during this international break.

Writing in his column on the Mail Online, Sutton claimed: “Ronald Koeman's days are numbered at Everton. In truth, I struggle to see him lasting the international break.

“Everton’s next game is a trip to Brighton. On this form, with Koeman in charge, would you have any confidence they would get a result?

“They have lost four of their seven Premier League games and it is the manner of the defeats which is most concerning.”

Sutton adds that, having been in charge on Merseyside since the start of last season, and having spent also £150million this summer, Koeman should have the side in a much better place.

He said: “Everton had plenty of time to replace Romelu Lukaku but somehow they have bought three No 10s — Wayne Rooney, Davy Klaassen and Gylfi Sigurdsson — and no striker.

Everton's next game after the international break is against Brighton, we'll wait and see if Koeman would still be the one shouting instructions on the sideline.
