Everton manager Sam Allardyce believes the idea to send out a survey asking for supporters to mark him and his coaching staff out of ten was an error.

Members of the club's fans panel were sent a questionnaire which, among other things, asked them to rate their manager.

"I think from my point of view and club's view it was a mistake," the Toffees boss said.

"It's allowed you to write some beautiful headlines."

Asked what he would give himself, Allardyce jokingly replied: "P*** off!" before adding: "Eleven!

"It hasn't made any difference to me and it won't until someone at the very highest level rings me up and says, 'Sam you're not wanted any more'.

"If that happened, I'd be more than disappointed."

Allardyce added that he had received an apology from chairman Bill Kenwright.
