It’s all a bit of a mess at Everton right now.

Sam Allardyce has been sacked after just six months in charge, despite leading them to an eighth-placed finish.

Before his sacking, Allardyce spoke of his dismay that the club had restructured the board without his consent.

"I'm shocked, disappointed and disgusted that the football club didn't have the decency to tell me, my director of football and my staff about the changes," said Allardyce.

"They must have been in the pipeline for a considerable time but no-one thought to tell me and my staff."

Soon enough, Allardyce was next out of the door.

While the majority of Everton fans will be glad to see the back of Allardyce and his style of play, his departure might bring some more welcome news.


That’s because, according to The Sun, Wayne Rooney could now make a U-Turn on his potential departure to the MLS.

The report claims Rooney wants to speak to the new Everton manager before making any further decision on his future.

It states: “Wayne Rooney’s move to America could be off after Everton sacked boss Sam Allardyce.

“Striker Roo was due to join MLS side DC United on a £300,000-a-week deal and said his goodbyes last Friday. But he has decided to put the switch on hold following Big Sam’s axing yesterday as he wants to speak to the new boss before committing to the USA.”


It’s believed that Allardyce had told Rooney that he wouldn’t be playing regular football next season and that was a key factor in the 32-year-old wanting to leave the club.

However, Rooney now wants to speak to the incoming boss at Goodison Park to see how he fits in their plans.

That incoming boss could well be former Watford manager Marco Silva.

According to reports, Everton have approached the Portuguese coach who they also targeted before Allardyce was appointed.

Is Rooney in his plans and will he convince him to stay at his boyhood club?

Time will tell…
