Unsworth stresses patience needed for new Everton manager

  • Mike believes new Everton boss Sam Allardyce will be all smiles on Saturday afternoon

The UK branch of the African betting firm posted the famous video of Big Sam dancing to Rihanna's "We Found Love", captioned: "Sam Allardyce is set to become the new Everton manager!".

Everton issued a holding tweet to say that Allardyce was expected at the training ground for talks but, even though contractual matters had long since been concluded, no official announcement came.

Everton's successful Under-23 coach David Unsworth has been in temporary charge since Koeman's departure and had some support to be appointed full-time but has won just won and lost five of his seven games at the helm.

Is Sam Allardyce the right man for the Everton job? Because, 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.

The Dudley-born manager has also earned a reputation as a survival specialist, where he performed miracles at clubs like Crystal Palace and Sunderland as he helped ensure their Premier League status. "Obviously, the club has gone through a hard spell and hopefully I can put that behind us as quickly as possible and start looking upwards again", Allardyce said in statement.

Allardyce said: "I've always thought Everton was a great club".

"I have no ambitions to take another job", he added at the time, "I simply want to be able to enjoy all the things you can not really enjoy with the 24/7 demands of managing any football club, let alone one in the Premier League".

The Toffees spent more than £130m on new players in the summer but have struggled without last season's top scorer Romelu Lukaku, who was sold to Manchester United for £75m in July.

Everton announced an agreement was in place on Wednesday and officially confirmed Allardyce's appointment a day later, finally hiring a full-time successor to Ronald Koeman.

With Unsworth overseeing his final match at home to West Ham tonight, Allardyce's first game in charge will be against Huddersfield Town at Goodison Park this Saturday.
