Allardyce sweet on Toffees role

Sam Allardyce has admitted that he would have to ‘consider’ the Everton job if he was offered the job.

David Unsworth is currently in caretaker charge of the club, following Ronald Koeman’s departure earlier this month.

Unsworth has confirmed his desire for the job, but two defeats have not inspired confidence whilst Burnley’s Sean Dyche has refused to rule himself out of the reckoning.

Allardyce has been linked, but he has previously said he was not looking for a club job again following his stint at Crystal Palace – instead looking at potential international roles, but seemingly the chance to manage a club the size of Everton is making him think twice.

“I’d have to consider that if that phone call happens,” Allardyce told BeIN Sports, when asked if he would take the Everton job if offered.

“There’s no point speculating at the moment. David Unsworth is in the chair, Joe [Royle] sat upstairs will have an opinion today [after the Leicester defeat] and from the Chelsea game.

“It’s really going to be tough for Everton to get out of that position. Not because the lads are not trying, but as a team collectively they can’t keep a clean sheet and can’t score a goal.

“Those are the two problems, if you resolve one, you’ll end up resolving the other and that will start with the clean sheet.”

Now following Allardyce’s comments, Bookmakers have moved quickly following a flurry of interest and the former England, Bolton, Newcastle and Sunderland boss is now favourite.

“Allardyce may be interested in the Goodison vacancy but there is every chance that punters have put 2 and 2 together and made five,” said BetVictor’s Charlie McCann.

“Big Sam has a reputation of a fire-fighter who can save clubs from relagation but will Farhad Moshiri believe this is the case at Everton despite the fact that we are in the bottom three.

“He has never previously appealed to me as an Everton-manager-in-waiting and I’m not convinced he will be our next manager although others clearly disagree.”
