Unsworth reiterates desire to get full-time Everton gig

Unsworth reiterates desire to get full-time Everton gig

Everton's caretaker boss David Unsworth says he is "surprised" anyone would rule themselves out of becoming manager of the Toffees. "I've said that 5000 times since I've been at the club and I'm still here", he said.

Allardyce told talkSPORT on Wednesday that he had opted to remove himself from the race for the Goodison Park post, with the man labelled "Big Sam" stating that the job just "didn't feel right" after Everton's board had dragged its heels over appointing Ronald Koeman's successor.

The 63 year old Allardyce indicated that he would be willing to speak to Everton should they approach him but has since indicated that he used the interview process to rule himself out of consideration.

The former Everton defender has publicly spoken of his desire to succeed Koeman permanently, and Phil Neville, who skippered the Toffees for seven seasons, is desperate to see a young British coach in Unsworth be given the reins at a top Premier League club.

"This is an incredible club with, in my opinion, the best fans - you saw that in the last game at Everton".

"I've spoken to the chairman every day and the owner three or four times".

"I'm thrilled, it's a great honour".

When Unsworth was asked if he would be happy to lead Everton for the rest of the season, he said: "The people that matter know my position and my feelings, and that goes without saying".

"Be it myself, wonderful".

The result moved Everton up to 15th place in the table, but they remain just two points clear of the relegation zone and face back-to-back away fixtures against Crystal Palace and Southampton. If not, I will shake the hand of whoever it is and wish them all the best because I want them to win and succeed, because I want this club to succeed.
