New Everton boss Sam Allardyce takes charge of record seventh Premier League clubby Jack Kitson / 01 December 2017, 09:06Tweet
Sam Allardyce has broken his own record after Everton named him as their ninth boss in the Premier League era.
Big Sam, whose name had been plastered in every single top-flight vacancy this season, takes charge of his SEVENTH Premier League club after penning a deal through to June 2019.
This accumulation of clubs beats that of Harry Redknapp, Mark Hughes, Roy Hodgson who each have overseen five teams, while David Moyes has four to his name.
Allardyce has famously never been relegated from the top-tier, which is an impressive feat considering the teams he’s managed: Bolton, Newcastle, Blackburn, West Ham, Sunderland, and Crystal Palace. In total he’s managed 488 Premier League games, winning 165, drawing 131, and losing 192, meaning he has a win rate of 33.8%.
Firefighter Big Sam will now look to preserve that record with an Everton side that have endured a wretched season.
Allardyce’s presence in the stands on Wednesday did inspire the club to a comprehensive 4-0 win over their former boss Moyes and his woeful West Ham side. The win, just their fourth in 14 games, lifted the club up to 13th place, five points above the relegation zone.
In his first game in charge against - at home to Huddersfield on Saturday - the 63-year-old will look to win the Merseyside outfit back-to-back matches for the first time since April. Allardyce’s men are priced at 8/11 to bag all three points, with a draw at 14/5, while David Wagner’s troops are priced at 9/2 to come away with the victory.
