Proven manager rejects Everton offer to leave coast clear for rival

Proven manager rejects Everton offer to leave coast clear for rival

Former Leicester City boss Craig Shakespeare is set to re-join former colleague Sam Allardyce should the former Crystal Palace manager take on the vacant job at Everton.

Everton have failed in an attempt to hire Paulo Fonseca as the English Premier League club's new manager.

Allardyce had been an early front-runner, alongside Burnley manager Sean Dyche, but he publicly withdrew from the race to succeed Koeman earlier this month due to a lack of firm interest from Goodison.

But with Allardyce reluctant to return to management on a six-month contract, Everton are faced with the prospect of having to offer the former England manager a more long-term deal in order to persuade the 63-year-old to end his self-imposed exile from the game in the wake of his resignation at Crystal Palace during the summer.

Five weeks since sacking Ronald Koeman, Everton have still not appointed his long term replacement.

Everton have won just one of the seven games under Unsworth, losing five, and fan opinion turned sharply with their last two outings - a 5-1 home loss to Atalanta and a 4-1 reverse at Southampton.




Both Silva and Fonseca would be interested in taking what promises to be an unusually well-resourced job at a club whose ownership is planning to radically overhaul its playing staff with the aim of securing Champions League football.

Interim manager Gary Megson will oversee proceedings against Newcastle on Tuesday night - with Pardew expected to be in the stands ahead of an announcement after the game. Now leading Ukraine's top tier, they host Manchester City next week requiring one point to guarantee a place in the last 16 of the Champions League.

"But if he doesn't get it, he has done a very good job with the under-23s". "I think it's very important you help the club out in a hard time".

"He won the league previous year, they are up towards the top of the league and you look at the players Everton are bringing through, the Tom Davies' of the world, and a few more".

It's certainly not the strangest appointment Everton could make right now, as Pulis could look to stabilise the situation at the Merseyside club, strengthen the woeful defence and add to the side in January with whatever budget Farhad Moshiri has remaining.

When confidence is low, it takes a bit of time to build it back up.
