He said: ‘When I was getting offered the West Ham job, I had actually been in Germany with (Farhad) Moshiri to take the Everton job. It was absolutely done until in the meeting my telephone ran out of battery.
‘The phone rang in the middle of the meeting with Everton – it was (West Ham owner) David Sullivan. I had to say: “I can’t speak right now.”
‘Carlo Ancelotti got sacked that night and (Everton) changed track and took him.
