Sheffield Utd boss Weir admits interviewing for Everton job

New Sheffield United boss David Weir admits he went for the manager's post at Everton.

Weir was interviewed by Everton after David Moyes left for Manchester United but missed out to Wigan boss Roberto Martinez.

He said: "I'd like to think I got relatively close to getting the job. But I enjoyed the experience. It confirmed to me I was ready to be a manager and how much I wanted to be a manager."
