Everton caretaker boss David Unsworth happy 'opportunity' continues

Everton caretaker boss David Unsworth happy 'opportunity' continues

"I've spoken to the chairman (Bill Kenwright) every day since I've been in this role".

Everton got rid of Ronald Koeman last month following underwhelming start to the campaign but the Toffees haven't still hired the Dutchman's replacement as of yet, which has anxious the club faithful.

The 44-year-old stepped up from the under-23s following Koeman's exit and has so far seen Everton lose three times, then win 3-2 against Watford. "It would surprise me that anyone would rule themselves out of being Everton manager", said Unsworth. "No matter how long I'm here I'll give my best", said Unsworth on Friday.

'For me, it's a great opportunity.

"Everybody that matters knows my feelings and it goes without saying, but other people will make that decision". Their only Premier League away success of 2017 came in January against a Palace side managed by Sam Allardyce, another candidate approached by the Everton hierarchy.




"I don't want to talk about Everton".

"I saw that [Allardyce's comments] and it would surprise me that anyone would rule themselves out of being Everton manager because this is an awesome club with the best fans, as we saw at the last match", said the former Toffees defender.

Silva knows he could speed up the process by resigning but does not want to be seen as a manager who leaves clubs in the lurch.

He closed out talk about his job adding that he was happy to be part of the club in whatever role.

It is the second-straight year that the former centre-half has braved the five-degree Merseyside temperatures to help the club's official charity's "Home Is Where The Heart Is" project supporting people living on the streets in Liverpool. We need the fans more than ever. "They understand easily, we don't talk about the situation". If that's sat here, brilliant.
