David Unsworth has reiterated his desire to get the Everton job on a full-time basis.
Unsworth, who stepped up after the sacking of Ronald Koeman, stated his intention to keep the job when he was made caretaker, but has lost three of his four games in charge.
Everton have chased Watford manager Marco Silva, but have so far failed to land any target. Unsworth will take charge of the weekend game against Crystal Palace.
“This is an amazing club. No matter how long I’m here I’ll give my best,” said Unsworth on Friday.
“The people who matter know my feelings, that goes without saying. But what will be will be,” he said on Friday.
“I’ve spoken to the chairman every day and the owner three or four times.
“Communication is fine. If it’s me, wonderful, if not I’ll shake the hand of whoever it is.”
