Everton attacker Walcott in Wenger dig: I wanted a manager who could get best from me

Everton attacker Theo Walcott has had a dig at Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger.

Walcott thinks Everton boss Sam Allardyce will help him rediscover his touch at Goodison Park.

“Sam was one of the main reasons why I came to the club," Walcott told the club's website.

“I wanted a manager like that who could get the best out of me.

“I had that short stint with Sam with England and to see it now every day, the way the intensity of training is and how demanding it is has been great.

“I like to go into training every day and try to be better than the day before."
