Supporters of Everton have fumed over interview footage with Sammy Lee, where he defended Sam Allardyce, that emerged on Twitter.

The footage from an interview with Radio City Talk was shared to Toffees supporters by Everton News Feed, which had fans fuming due to the former assistant manager’s defence of the manager that he worked under.

Was Sam Allardyce the worst Everton manager in recent memory?

Yes, he was absolutely dreadful

Yes, he was absolutely dreadful

No, he wasn't quite the worst

No, he wasn't quite the worst

The former England manager spent just half a season at Goodison Park, during which he oversaw a 1.42 points per match total across 26 games as gaffer (as per Transfermarkt).

Since departing Everton, the 65-year-old manager has not taken over the reins of any other club, however, supporters were keen to not forget how they felt about Allardyce’s time in charge of the Toffees.

What do we think?

Whatever you may think about Allardyce’s time at Goodison Park, it is absolutely clear that he did not have the fans on his side and in football that is one of the most important things to have.

While the results were positive on the whole, during Allardyce’s and Lee’s time at the club, it is absolutely certain that the management duo and the club were just not a good fit (per The Guardian).
