Allardyce blames Everton for ‘hesitating’ over decision

Sam Allardyce has explained why he has removed himself from the running to become Everton manager.

Allardyce was once the favourite to replace Ronald Koeman as permanent Everton boss, but is no longer under consideration.

The Toffees are now thought to want to appoint Watford boss Marco Silva, but David Unsworth is expected to be appointed until the end of the season.

Former England manager Allardyce says that he is not in contention.

“It never materialised as I thought it would, unfortunately,” he said.

“For me, such a long time without a decision, I had to make a decision myself. The decision was it was probably better it wasn’t me, and I’d move on to something else. It would have been a fabulous job, but it just didn’t feel right.

“I think when you’re sat in my position you want people to be decisive and feel like they want you. I didn’t get that feeling overall. They were hesitating that I was the man.”
