Everton have finally appointed Sam Allardyce as their new manager.
The Toffees have announced the appointment of the former England boss, more than six weeks after the dismissal of Ronald Koeman reports the mirror sport.
Allardyce, 63, has put pen-to-paper on an 18-month deal, worth £9million, meaning he will earn more than the likes of Atletico Madrid boss Diego Simeone, Juventus manager Max Allegri, PSG chief Unai Emery and even Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane.
He was formally unveiled at Goodison Park ahead of the Toffees’ premier league match against fellow strugglers West Ham. Everton won the game by 4-0 with Wayne Rooney bagging a hat trick.
However, Sam Allardyce’s first game with Everton is against Huddersfield at the weekend.
After a long period of negotiations, the owner of the Merseyside club is delighted to have appointed the Big Sam to help the team.
“I really want to give him the support he needs,” said the Toffees owner, Moshiri. “He can go as far as he wants.
“We need a strong leader, he gives us that.”
