Allardyce Leaves England Job

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

FA chairman Greg Clarke said Allardyce had said things that were “inappropriate for a manager to say”.

It came after a newspaper reported he had offered advice on how to “get around” player transfer rules.

Allardyce made a “wholehearted apology” and said he recognised some of his comments had “caused embarrassment”.

The FA called his conduct inappropriate and said his contract was ended by mutual agreement. Gareth Southgate will be in charge for four England matches.

Allardyce says he is “deeply disappointed” to have left his role as England manager after just 67 days.
