Everton striker Oumar Niasse has revealed he feels sorry for former boss Ronald Koeman despite all that transpired between them.
"Anyone who rules themselves out of this club surprises me".
Everton interim boss David Unsworth has claimed that he was surprised to hear Sam Allardyce rule himself out of the running for the managerial position at Goodison Park.
Unsworth took over Everton on a temporary basis last month following the sacking of Ronald Koeman after the side's 5-2 defeat to Arsenal saw them drop into the Premier League's bottom three.
The Toffees caretaker was initially given four games to prove himself.

The result extended Peru's unbeaten run to 10 games, their longest such streak in 75 years. Gareca was dropped, an experience he later described as one of the bitterest of his career.
"We will not countenance an approach for our manager, either from Everton or indeed any other club, be it in the Premier League or overseas", a spokesman for the club was quoted as saying by Sky Sports.
"I have spoken to the chairman (Bill Kenwright) every day since I've been sat in this role and he has been magnificent".
"I've seen bits of speculation but not a great deal".
"This is an fantastic club with, in my opinion, the best fans - you saw that in the last game at Everton". I've spoken to Fahad three or four times, communication is fine and I continue to have the opportunity to lead the team. "I'll just be focused on taking the team tomorrow and getting a result".
"For me such a long time without a decision, I had to make a decision myself". If not, I will shake the hand of whoever it is and wish them all the best because I want them to win and succeed, because I want this club to succeed.
