Former England Manager, Sam Allardyce, reveals that he has not been contacted to replace Frank Lampard at Everton. The Toffee’s find themselves in 19th position, without a manager which has made relegation seem a real possibility. 

After the inevitable sacking of Frank Lampard, following Everton’s 2-0 loss away at West Ham, the hunt for a successor is underway. Marcelo Bielsa who is 5/2 to claim the job on UK betting sites and Sean Dyche, 3/1, find themselves as the bookies’ front runner’s, but the rather shocking candidate was Sam Allardyce.

Back in November 2017, Big Sam took over Everton when they sat 13th in the table and managed to get the Toffee’s into a respectable, 8th place. After six months the ‘Survival Specialist’ was relieved of his duties and took the reigns at West Brom.

However, 68-year-old, who is a 12/1 candidate according to Premier League betting sites, has confirmed he has received no contact from the blue side of Merseyside, who have reportedly been listed for sale by Farhad Moshiri.

Allardyce said: “If I was going to Everton, they’d have already rang me. I have a lot of respect for Farhad Moshiri and the money he has found for Everton.  They have invested in players that haven’t delivered under two different managers.”

Although Allardyce has put himself out of contention, with the likes of Bielsa and Dyche being linked, he believes if Everton find the “right manager” they can avoid playing Championship football next season.

Allardyce added: “The right manager can save them, but he will have to shut out all of the surroundings, get their players to put their headphones on and block out the white noise.”
