Allardyce confirmed as new Everton manager

English football manager Sam Allardyce arrives at Goodison Park in Liverpool north west England

David Unsworth has been in temporary charge since Ronald Koeman was sacked on October 23 and the under-23s boss had made clear his desire to take on the job permanently.

Allardyce has been out of work since resigning as Crystal Palace managerin May.

The price of relegation is too much to consider for any established Premier League team these days.

"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". Following an outlay of almost $200 million on new players last summer, Everton was expected to be challenging for the top four, not fighting against the drop.

Sky Sports also revealed that Everton also engaged in talks with highly rated Shakhtar Donetsk boss Paulo Fonseca.

With Everton being absolutely disgusting at football this season under Ronald Koeman they decided that the threat of losing out on all that money was too great so they sacked him and spent a month trying to find the ideal manager. It is 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 fans are the most important people at any football club, of course, and we have to give the players every possibility to play to their best, really give them no excuses for not playing to their best and get them right back up to the top level we believe they're capable of".

The 63-year-old will manage his first match when Everton host Huddersfield Town on Saturday. Rooney came on a free transfer in a sentimental return to his boyhood team but struggled to make a real impact before scoring a spectacular hat trick in the 4-0 win over West Ham on Wednesday, in front of the watching Allardyce. But, after taking four points from their first two games, Everton managed the same tally from their next seven fixtures and Koeman was sacked.
