Allardyce wants ex-Liverpool duo in Everton setup

  • Sam Allardyce unveils Everton escape plan, including what to do with Wayne Rooney – before taking the job

Former England boss Allardyce ruled himself out of the running earlier this month, claiming he did not feel the Toffees were convinced he was the right man.

Allardyce has been out of management since his surprise decision to quit Crystal Palace at the end of last season, having succeeded in a six-month mission to keep them in the top-flight.

Having previously shown interest in acquiring the services of Watford manager Marco Silva and then Ireland boss Martin O'Neill, Everton have now announced that Allardyce will take over from interim manager David Unsworth, who will lead the Goodison Park outfit for the last time tonight against West Ham.

Allardyce said: "I've always thought Everton was a great club".

A loss would see Everton sucked into the relegation zone.

Lee is a supporter of Everton's bitter local rivals Liverpool and, as well as being a player for the Reds, he was once a part of the coaching staff at Anfield, arriving there in 2008 to serve as assistant manager to Rafa Benitez.

The bookmaker replaced Chang Beer as Everton's shirt sponsor in the summer, signing a five-year agreement with the Goodison Park club.

Everton are now 17th in the table and have won just one of seven games in all competitions under Unsworth, who is the club's under-23s manager.

After years of being unable to come close to matching the financial clout of the Premier League's big guns, Everton finally had significant backing thanks to new owner Farhad Moshiri.

His achievements at the Stadium of Light - which look all the more impressive given what has happened since - earned him his dream job with England.
