Allardyce Confirmed As New Everton Boss

Sam Allardyce has been confirmed as Everton's new manager after signing an 18-month deal at Goodison Park.
The former England, Newcastle and Sunderland boss will take charge of the Toffees for the first time time in Saturday's English Premier League clash at home to Huddersfield.

The 63-year-old former England boss, who has signed a deal until June 2019 to become the permanent successor to Ronald Koeman, who was sacked in October with the club 18th in the English Premier League, has been out of work since leaving Crystal Palace in May.
Allardyce said: "The attraction of the club itself, the people I've known at the club - Peter Reid is one of my best mates, so are Andy Gray and Paul Bracewell whom I worked with at Sunderland - these people have always made me aware of just how special and unique a club Everton is and I feel really enthused and energised to come in as manager.
Allardyce called on the club to rally together to turn things around after Everton's poor start

"I've always thought Everton was a great club. It is a great club. 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.

"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."

Everton owner Moshiri added: "I'm delighted to confirm Sam as our new manager. His strong leadership will bring great motivation and get the best out of players.
"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.

"Evertonians are the most passionate and best fans in the world and when the club does badly we all suffer. But in football everything changes very quickly, so I hope this will help to propel us to where we should be.

"I would like to put on record our thanks as a Club to David Unsworth for stepping up when we needed him over the last few weeks. He is a real Evertonian, embodying the commitment, pride and passion we all feel for the club."
