Sam Allardyce Confirmed As The New Manager Of Everton

Sam Allardyce

Allardyce famously has never been relegated from the Premier League, having taken over mid-season to keep Sunderland and Palace in the top division the past two campaigns.

Eventually Allardyce, who left Crystal Palace at the end of last season, became the frontrunner and he joins despite insisting in the past that only an global job would bring him back into management.

Former England boss Sam Allardyce is being strongly linked with the vacancy and talks are said to be taking place between the club and his representatives. "Sam understands the long-term ambitions we have for this great club and I know he is a man who gives it his all and is focused 24 hours a day on the club".

He continued: "Ultimately, it's the ambition of the club, the ambition of the owner and the board, allied to the fact that it's Everton and all the fantastic history, which have proved to be key for me". Following an outlay of almost $200 million on new players last summer, Everton was expected to be challenging for the top four, not fighting against the drop.

Joey Barton has wound up Everton fans again by joking that Sam Allardyce deserved all the credit for the Toffees' big win last night.

Palace chairman Steve Parish agreed to his departure and it is believed the south London club would receive a compensation package of around £2m if Allardyce takes a new job before next summer.

Writing in his column for Paddy Power recently the soon to be Everton manager wrote about the sides troubles saying, "Everton are obviously in a bad place at the moment and, like every football club that is struggling, it's mainly down to a loss of belief".

Allardyce, 63, watched from the stands as Wayne Rooney scored a hat-trick in Everton's 4-0 thrashing of West Ham United on Wednesday and takes over with the Merseyside club 13th in the table, five points above the relegation zone. He will oversee the team's Saturday fixture against Huddersfield.
