Information has it that Big Sam as he is popularly called might be Everton’s next manager to replace Ronald Koeman after a face-to-face meeting with Farhad Moshiri.
Sam Allardyce who took charge of Irish club Limerick in 1991, leading the club to the League of Ireland First Division title in 1991–92. He returned to England to coach at Preston North End, also serving briefly as caretaker-manager. He took up his first permanent management role in England at Blackpool in July 1994, but was sacked after two years having narrowly failed to achieve promotion.
Down to 2017 – He announced his resignation on 23 May 2017 after avoiding relegation with Crystal Palace in his first season, saying he did not intend to take another job, later claiming he would accept an international position.
Recently, Big Sam has spoken on several occasions in the last week about how he is attracted to taking over at Goodison Park and that prospect has moved a step closer to reality.
Everton’s board will hold a scheduled meeting in the coming days but the main point on the agenda will be identifying the next man to take the club forward.
Hopefully, the meeting might work in his favour.
