Everton has dismissed manager Jean-Luc Vasseur after just 10 games at the helm following a poor run of results, the Women’s Super League (WSL) club announced on Wednesday.

Vasseur, a decorated coach who led French side Lyon to the Women’s Champions League and the league title in 2019-20, took charge at Everton at the end of October but failed to make an impression, overseeing just one league victory.

Everton is third from bottom in the 12-team WSL with 11 points from as many games.

“Everton can confirm that Jean-Luc Vasseur has left his role as manager of the club’s women’s team. Assistant coaches Frederic Piquionne and Franck Plaine have also left,” the club said in a statement.

Chris Roberts and Claire Ditchburn will take charge of the team on an interim basis. Everton next hosts sixth-placed Reading in the league on Sunday.
