Everton FC manager facing sack if team keep losing games
Sam Allardyce hoping for a change in fortune at Goodison Park in final few games of the season
March 9th, 2018
Everton supporters have been underwhelmed by two managers this season, possibly three if you include David Unsworth who featured between the reigns of Ronald Koeman and Sam Allardyce.
It is Allardyce who is currently in charge, with the former Palace and Sunderland boss having struggled to get a tune out of his Everton squad and they face Brighton this weekend with the manager knowing that results are imperative.
Allardyce said: “I have always said that managers stay in a job when they win football matches. I can’t continue to lose football matches. It is as simple as that.
“There is no point beating about the bush and saying you can have as much backing as you want. There is great backing from the owners but I have to win matches to reassure them that I am the right man for the job. While that support is there, it is my responsibility to alleviate the pressure on everybody – Farhad included – by winning football matches.
“It is one of those big moments again this season of having to turn the season around. The position we have allowed ourselves to get in has put us under enormous pressure to do that. It is a huge game, one of the biggest I’ve had in my short time here, I would say, with the pressure that has been heaped upon us all by the lack of away results.”
