Sam Allardyce has stated loud and clear that he expects to be in charge at Everton next season.
The former England boss has been tipped to be sacked by the Toffees, despite steering them clear of the drop zone to the safety of the top half of the table. Despite his apparent success, Blues fans are not happy with the performances produced under Big Sam, with many wanting him to be replaced this summer.
However, speaking in his press conference, Allardyce has revealed he has already been in discussions with club owner Farhad Moshiri making plans for next season.
“We discussed plans for next season yesterday with Farhad,” said Allardyce. “I think we have some clarity moving forward now.
“I think our pre-season, in terms of when we start back and where we go, is nearly in place.
“(Regarding) ins and outs of players, it is a wait-and-see basis in terms of what we can try and achieve and then, under those circumstances, what players do we move on.”
Pressed on whether he was definitely on board for next term, he replied: “Didn’t I just say that?
“For clarification, yes.”
Everton take he short trip across the Pennines tomorrow to take on Huddersfield, who are still not safe from relegation.
