Entrapment has won – Sam Allardyce

Ex-England boss Sam Allardyce has said “entrapment has won” after newspaper allegations led to him stepping down as manager of the national side.

Allardyce left in disgrace after just 67 days after The Daily Telegraph said he advised undercover reporters posing as businessmen how to “get around” player transfer rules.

He said it was a “silly thing to do”.

But when asked if it was his last job in management, the 61-year-old said: “Who knows? We’ll wait and see.”

“Unfortunately it was an error of judgement on my behalf,” added the former Sunderland manager. “I’ve paid the consequences. Entrapment has won on this occasion and I have to accept that.”

Earlier, he told Sky Sports he had only attended the meeting with the undercover reporters as a favour to friend and agent Scott McGarvey, who he says was hoping to land a job out of it.
