Senegal international Idrissa Gueye has lauded Everton FC manager Sam Allardyce for the improvement the team has seen.

The English tactician succeeded Dutch trainer Ronald Koeman last November and he managed to stabilize the Everton FC ship.

The Toffees are heading into Saturday's clash with Huddersfield Town placed eighth on the English Premier League standings.

“We know that when he came here we were near the bottom of the table," Gueye told club website.

Allardyce joined Everton over a year after he was fired as England head coach.

"With him, we came out of that. When he came in, we started winning games and at one time we were fighting for seventh place," the midfielder added.

'We were close but even so we have done a good job to improve.”

Gueye has flourished under Allardyce having made 30 appearances in the league for the Toffees this season.
