Sunderland boss Sam Allardyce has advice for Everton in their managerial search

Sunderland boss Sam Allardyce believes Everton should be looking to appoint a British manager.

Sunderland boss Sam Allardyce has told the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast Show, which was broadcast on TalkSPORT on 13th May, that Everton should look towards a manager with Premier League experience in their next appointment.

The Toffees parted company with Roberto Martinez yesterday, after enduring a highly disappointing campaign this term.

Everton are currently stuck in 12th place in the Premier League table, and they have won just once in their last 10 matches.

That bad run of form saw the pressure grow on Martinez, and it was deemed that his position had become untenable yesterday.

Everton are now on the hunt for a new manager, and Allardyce believes that the Merseyside club should be looking at someone with Premier League experience.

“I think Everton have got a chance if they have got a bigger pot and funds,” Allardyce said. “Somebody with Premier League experience would be well suited to Everton.

“Moyes brought a great side, Roberto took it on and only just slipped up this year. If they follow that route they should take it to the next level, I think.”

A range of managers have already been linked with the Everton job, and it is unclear as to who is their top target is at the moment.

Frank De Boer and Ronald Koeman have been tipped as potential replacements for Martinez, while Eddie Howe, Manuel Pellegrini and even Jose Mourinho have also been suggested as possible new arrivals at Goodison Park.

Everton’s last match of the season comes against Norwich City, with David Unsworth and Joe Royle set to take charge.
