Everton have officially appointed a new manager and that is renowned top-flight survival specialist Sam Allardyce. He will be leading the club on an 18-month contract as per the announcement of the English Premier League club.
Allardyce was also the manager of clubs such as Bolton, Newcastle United, Sunderland and Crystal Palace. He will take charge of the Merseysiders for the first time when they welcome Huddersfield to Goodison Park 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.”
The 63-year-old Englishman succeeded Ronald Koeman as full-time manager after the Dutchman was sacked in October. This was followed by David Unsworth who became the caretaker for the Toffees.
