What The Papers Say - 2 December

Welcome, Marco!

Everything you need to know about the new boss here.

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

Saturday's newspapers are full of reaction to Sam Allardyce's first press conference as Everton boss.

The Daily Star quotes Allardyce as saying he is the "right man" for the Toffees job, while The Guardian reports the former Bolton Wanderers manager hopes to extend his stay at Goodison Park beyond his initial 18-month contract.

The Liverpool Echo also features Allardyce calling Everton a "huge" club, and the new man's insistence that he "could not say no" to the Blues is included in the majority of publications.

Previews of Everton's Premier League clash with Huddersfield Town feature across all of the papers, with the headline news being defender Michael Keane's return to fitness following the minor injury he sustained at Southampton last week.

And the Bury Times reports that Everton's 1995 FA Cup winning midfielder Joe Parkinson has been installed as assistant boss at League One club Bury.
