Allardyce leaves England job after 67 days in charge

Sam Allardyce has left his post as England manager on mutual consent with the Football Association after one match and 67 days in charge.

This comes after a footage released by newspaper outlet Daily Telegraph showed him advising under cover journalists on how to avoid third party ownership rules in Football.

Allardyce is also alleged to have used his role to negotiate a deal worth £400,000 to represent a Far East firm.

An FA statement said Allardyce’s conduct “was inappropriate”. It added that the former Sunderland and West Ham Manager accepted he made a significant error of judgement and has apologized.

“This is not a decision that was taken lightly but the FA’s priority is to protect the wider interests of the game and maintain the highest standards of conduct in football.

“The manager of the England men’s senior team is a position which must demonstrate strong leadership and show respect for the integrity of the game at all times.”

Allardyce becomes the national side’s shortest-serving full-time manager. Assistant Manager Gareth Southgate takes temporary charge.
