Tony Bellew would 'play up top' if was appointed Everton boss

Boxer Tony Bellew says if he took over as boss at manager-less Everton, the club he has supported since boyhood - he'd "stick himself up top, give myself the number nine - I'd take free-kicks, I'd take pens, I'd take corners..."

Bellew takes on Ilunga Makubu at Goodison Park - home to Everton - on 29 May for the vacant WBC cruiserweight title.

The Toffees are currently without a manager after the sacking of Roberto Martinez earlier in May.

You can see an extended Tony Bellew interview on BBC Breakfast, BBC One this Sunday morning.
