Big Sam Allardyce Set To Be Sacked By "Extremely Disturbed" FA Chiefs

Big Sam Allardyce Set To Be Sacked By "Extremely Disturbed" FA Chiefs
By Gavan Casey

The FA are reportedly set to sack England manager Sam Allardyce following the publication of the Telegraph's 10-month long investigation into corruption in football last night.

Martin Ziegler of The Times writes that FA chairman Greg Clarke and chief executive Martin Glenn were holding an emergency meeting at Wembley this morning, and are understood to be "extremely disturbed" by allegations against the new England manager.

He reports that the FA are now close to sacking Sam Allardyce after allegations that he used his position to negotiate a £400,000 deal, and appeared to offer advice on how to get around rules on player transfers.

The former Sunderland manager was filmed by undercover reporters from The Telegraph, and believed he was negotiating a deal with a football agency from the Far East - casually criticising his predecessor Roy Hodgson, Gary Neville and even British royalty throughout the conversation.

Meanwhile, Sky Sports reporter Kaveh Solhekol is reporting that as many as 10 other managers were approached by The Telegraph in similar circumstances.

If Allardyce does have his £3m-per-year contract terminated, he will be the first England manager to finish his reign with a 100% record (Soccer Aid appearances not included).
