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