Allardyce makes shock admission about his relationship with Everton fans

  Allardyce makes shock admission about his relationship with Everton fans Everton manager Sam Allardyce believes that he has the support of the majority of the club’s supporters. As reported by the Daily Post, the former England boss was confident about his relationship with the supporters, despite widespread criticism. “It’s an entertainment game, you’re trying to capture hearts and minds, and certainly I think, particularly from a home point of view, we’ve achieved that, not just with the results but the way we’ve played and the way we’ve beaten teams.” Fans have been quick to vent their frustration at the Everton boss with banners and protests at games. Many have criticised the team’s style of play after a frustrating second half of the season. Allardyce remains under contract going into next season but it is yet to be seen whether or not he will be in charge at Goodison Park in August. Paulo Fonseca and Marco Silva have been long-term targets for the Toffees and both are still heavily linked with the position. The former Sunderland boss was appointed to guide the club away from the relegation zone after a poor first half of the season. Everton look set to finish eighth, just outside of a place in the Europa League.
