Everton’s hierarchy are split over the direction the club should go in following the sacking of Ronald Koeman.

Sunday Mirror Sport can reveal that chairman Bill Kenwright, who delivered the news to Koeman that his 16 months reign at Goodison Park was over, would like caretaker boss David Unsworth to be given an extended run in charge.

But major shareholder Farhad Moshiri, who holds the purse strings with his investment and who financed Koeman’s £140million summer transfer splash, wants a bigger more established name to take control.
