"I Am Not A Quitter": Sam Allardyce Has Responded

"I Am Not A Quitter": Sam Allardyce Has Responded
By Conall Cahill Updated

Big Sam Allardyce has given his side of the story regarding the massive revelations in recent days that have caused him to lose his job as manager of the England national team.

Allardyce was sacked after an investigation by 'The Telegraph' revealed that he had been filmed advising undercover reporters disguised as businessmen how to get around FA rules on third party player ownership. Allardyce was, it was reported, in negotiations for a fee of around £400,000 for this information.

This morning 'Big Sam' has called Sky Sports News to speak out about what has happened.

Allardyce told SSN that he only attended the meeting in order to try and help an acquaintance - who he had known for over twenty years - get a job. He said that he was heading for a holiday for two weeks with his family in order to "reflect" on what had happened to him and that he was not finished in football, proclaiming that he was not a "quitter".

Here is the full SSN clip, where journalist Kaveh Solhekol outlines what Allardyce told SSN.

Update: Allardyce himself has appeared live on 'Sky Sports News' to explain himself. He admitted that what he had done was, "on reflection", "a silly thing to do". But perhaps in an effort to deflect blame away from himself he added that "entrapment won on this occasion".
