Everton appoints Sam Allardyce as new manager


Former England boss, Sam Allardyce has been appointed as the Everton new manager on an 18-month contract, on Thursday.

Allardyce, whose previous clubs include Bolton, Newcastle, Sunderland and Crystal Palace, will take charge of the Merseysiders for the first time when they welcome Huddersfield to Goodison Park for a league match on Saturday.

“I’ve always thought Everton was a great club,” Allardyce said in a club statement.

“Obviously, the club has gone through a difficult spell and hopefully I can put that behind us as quickly as possible and start looking upwards again.”

Allardyce’s arrival at the Liverpool club was effectively confirmed on Wednesday when Everton said they were finalising a deal with the 63-year-old Englishman, who will succeed Ronald Koeman as the Toffees’ full-time manager more than a month after the Dutchman was sacked.
