Cape Town - Ronald Koeman has expressed his disappointment following his sacking as Everton manager, but also wished the team good fortune for the rest of the season.

The Dutchman was axed by the Toffees on Monday, following a 5-2 hammering at the hands of Arsenal at Goodison Park on Sunday, after 16 months at the Merseyside club.

Everton revamped their squad in the off-season, spending just under £150m, but failed to find the results and dropped down into the relegation zone with the defeat to Arsenal.

"I would like to place on record my thanks to the players and staff for all of their work and commitment during my 16 months as Everton manager," Koeman stated on Twitter.

"I would like to thank Bill Kenwright, Farhad Moshiri and the Everton Board for the opportunity to have managed a great club and to the fans as well for their passionate support for the club.

"Naturally, I am disappointed at this moment, but I wish the team good luck for the future."

Everton has not won in their last five games in all competitions, losing three, drawing two and 18th in the Premier League standings.
