Unsworth stresses patience needed for new Everton manager

Unsworth stresses patience needed for new Everton manager

Things started poorly for the London Stadium outfit when Wayne Rooney netted the opener just 18 minutes into the match, with Sam Allardyce onlooking as he watched his soon-to-be-confirmed new club make light work of his former team West Ham.

On stepping down from Palace, the former West Ham, Newcastle, Blackburn and Bolton manager indicated that he would be retiring, saying: "This is the right time for me".

Everton said in a statement: "Sam Allardyce will be at USM Finch Farm this afternoon to finalise terms on becoming the new manager of Everton Football Club".

Everton take on West Ham tonight but Big Sam isn't expected to be in the dugout.

Allardyce is an ambassador for bookmakers Paddy Power, who have worked closely with the ex-England manager throughout this season. "I have no ambitions to take another job".

Everton are now sitting 17th in the table, two points ahead of the Hammers.

However, Sky Sports are today claiming to be privy to the striking of a pact between Allardyce and the Toffees, a deal that will see current caretaker manager David Unsworth return to his role as head of the Under-23 side...

That victory, when the Toffees came from two down late on to secure a 3-2 victory over Watford, looked like it might be a turning point.

The hosts have won only one of the seven games of David Unsworth's temporary spell in charge and lost five of them, with their last two outings a 5-1 home loss to Atalanta and 4-1 reverse against Saints. They have conceded more than twice as many goals as they have scored having failed to replace leading scorer Romelu Lukaku following his summer departure for Manchester United.

He previously held talks with the club's hierarchy only to announce he had withdrawn because he felt they were hesitating.
