What The Papers Say - 1 December

The views on this page are taken from the local and national media and do not necessarily reflect the views of Everton.

Friday’s newspapers reflect on the appointment of Sam Allardyce as permanent Everton manager. 

The 63-year-old was confirmed as the Blues’ new boss on Thursday evening after he penned a deal until the summer of 2019. 

Allardyce is quoted across the local and national editions saying he is “enthused and energised” by the challenge of managing at Goodison Park and that he was attracted by the Club’s “ambition”. 

Everton major shareholder Farhad Moshiri also features and describes Allardyce as “the most underrated British manager”. 

Finally, the Liverpool Echo says Dominic Calvert-Lewin’s performance in Wednesday’s 4-0 win over West Ham United could make it difficult for Oumar Niasse to reclaim his place when he returns from suspension for Saturday’s visit of Huddersfield Town.
