David Unsworth has told Everton’s official Youtube channel that he would love to take over from Roberto Martinez.
Unsworth is set to take temporary charge of the Toffees for their match against Norwich City tomorrow, following the dismissal of Martinez.
Unsworth was working as a youth-coach during the Spaniard’s time in charge, but he has ambitions to become a first-team manager in the future.
And he has suggested that he would love to take the job at Everton - whether that be now or in the future.
“Who wouldn’t want this job?,” he said, when asked whether he would like to be considered as a full-time appointment at Everton.
“I have massive aspirations to be a manager and this is the only place I want to manage. Whether it comes now or further down the line, other people will decide that.”
Martinez was sacked yesterday, with Everton stuck in 12th place in the Premier League table.
The Toffees go into their match against Norwich having won just one of their last 10 matches in all competitions.
If Everton lose again tomorrow they could slip all the way down to 16th place in the league standings, after what has been a highly disappointing campaign.
Ronald Koeman and Frank De Boer are currently the front runners to land the Everton job on a permanent basis.
