Many other club hierarchies would have pulled the trigger if presented with a similar situation, but Koeman revealed that Everton chiefs Farhad Moshiri, Bill Kenwright et al still have faith in him as he prepares to the lead his side through a gruelling triple-header against Lyon, Arsenal and Chelsea.
They languish in the bottom half of the Premier League table despite heavy investment in the squad over the summer, while they are now bottom of their Europa League group. So Koeman knows they need a great performance at Goodison and he's under no illusion just how tough it will be against Lyon.
With two of those games also coming in front of their own fans, the Blues can be sure of raucous support if they perform to the standards that are expected of them.
Everton still have just one point in the Europa League this season and their failure to get a result tonight means the pressure only continues to mount on Ronald Koeman.

Koeman said: "We want is to do well in them all (competitions)". "There was not really a message but the feeling is they are behind the team, they are behind the manager".
'Everybody knows in football that's a nice thing but in football always, finally, it's all about results. "Until now it's full, total support from the board, yes". Koeman's side are bottom of Group E, three points adrift of leaders Atlanta, having failed to win either of their opening matches.
"For one reason or another, that hasn't happened so far but all we can do is keep working hard to get it right".
