Sam Allardyce admits he didn’t watch England for years after getting sacked

Sam Allardyce has described his sacking as England manager as the “worst” thing to have happened to him. Known for managing various Premier League clubs like Bolton Wanderers, Newcastle United, and Blackburn Rovers, Allardyce took on the role of England’s head coach in July 2016. However, his tenure was cut short after just 67 days due to an undercover investigation into football corruption.

The sting operation by The Daily Telegraph captured Allardyce giving advice on how to bypass The FA’s transfer rules and negotiating a £400,000 agreement with fake businessmen. This incident led to his departure, and at the time, he expressed regret and sadness over the situation.

Now, at 69, Allardyce has opened up about the profound impact the scandal had on him. He revealed that it took him years to watch England games again after the incident. In an interview with Sky Sports, he reflected on his exit from the England team and its effect on his relationship with the Three Lions. “It really was the worst thing that ever happened to me in my lifetime, but it happened and there it is,” Allardyce admitted.

Currently unemployed after parting ways with Leeds United last year, Allardyce confessed to feeling “jealous” of the strong squad Gareth Southgate has at his disposal. “Supporting England again, and you know I am jealous of course, I think everybody would realise that I never got that squad,” he shared, expressing his envy and support for the current England team.
