Allardyce appointed Everton boss on £6m-a-year deal
Sam Allardyce has been confirmed as Everton’s new manager with majority shareholder Farhad Moshiri hailing him as a ‘strong leader’ and pledging ‘he can go as far as he wants.’
Allardyce, 63, returned from a holiday with his wife Lynne on Wednesday and met Moshiri to thrash out the finer details of his contract.
He will earn a salary approaching £6million a year during the 18-month deal and the former England manager will begin his tenure with Saturday’s Premier League fixture against Huddersfield Town at Goodison Park.
However, he will attend Wednesday night’s home match against West Ham.
