Al­lardyce ad­mits he’s in­ter­ested in tak­ing Ever­ton job ‘if that phone call hap­pens’

Daily Mirror - - MANCHESTER UNITED V BENFICA - BY MIKE WAL­TERS

SAM AL­LARDYCE has thrown his hat into the ring for the Ever­ton man­ager’s job, ad­mit­ting: “I’d have to con­sider it.”

For­mer Eng­land coach Al­lardyce has been out of foot­ball since he walked out on Crys­tal Palace 48 hours af­ter guid­ing them to Premier League safety.

The 63-year-old has never been rel­e­gated from the top flight with six clubs – Bolton, New­cas­tle, Blackburn, West Ham, Sun­der­land and Palace.

And no sooner had he ad­mit­ted that he was tempted

by a re­turn to man­age­ment than he was in­stalled as the book­ies’ favourite for the Good­i­son post.

Ever­ton, who last week sacked Ron­ald Koe­man and in­stalled David Unsworth (left) as care­taker, are strug­gling in the bot­tom three. When asked if he would an­swer an SOS, Al­lardyce replied: “I’d have to con­sider that, if that phone-call hap­pens.

“There’s no point in spec­u­lat­ing at the mo­ment be­cause David Unsworth is in the chair. But right now it looks like it’s go­ing to be tough for Ever­ton to get out of that po­si­tion.”
