Everton apologise to Sam Allardyce after fan survey fiasco

Everton apologise to Sam Allardyce after fan survey fiasco

Everton's Sam Allardyce addresses questions about Wayne Rooney's reaction to being substituted.

Antonio Conte has handed his support to Everton manager Sam Allardyce after a survey was given to Toffees fans asking to judge his performance this season.

Everton now lie 9th in the table after a disappointing season, and there has been speculation that Allardyce may exit the club at the end of the season, with fans unhappy about the style of football he has brought to the club.

"The survey. the managing director of marketing and communications has clearly slipped up", he told reporters at his weekly press conference. From my point of view it was a big mistake.

"Our director of marketing is not a great understander of football and how football works because he is into marketing". I think it has allowed you to write some handsome headlines.

"He must have thought it was the right thing to do but clearly everyone else hasn't and even the chairman I spoke to (on Wednesday night)". "An apology? Off the chairman, yes". "Don't ask me how many marks you'd think I'd get out of 10 either!"

When asked what mark he would have given himself, Allardyce joked: "P*** off!"

Despite completing that task, however, Evertonians don't believe he is the right man to take them forward and want majority shareholder Farhad Moshiri to replace him with a younger, hungrier, attack-minded manager in the close season.

"It hasn't made any difference to me concerning my position at the football club", he added.

"But I'd be extremely disappointed if that was the case".

Plenty of media outlets - the Times included - have reported that one such query relates to Allardyce, who many Everton fans have voiced their displeasure about since the 63-year-old's appointment.
