England is a nation full of football fanatics – do you know a household without a football fan?
It may have come as a shock to England fans when Sam Allardyce’s reign as the Senior England Men’s Football Team Manager ended earlier this week, after only 67 days in charge and having managed only one international game during that time.
According to the Daily Telegraph, Sam Allardyce advised undercover reporters posing as businessmen how to "get around" player transfer rules. This was before he had even taken charge of his first England training session!
The Football Association and Sam Allardyce mutually agreed to terminate his contract with immediate effect soon after the allegations and footage was published. It has been stated that he was not allowed to resign but had to leave by “mutual consent”. It was reported that if he had not agreed to that terminology, he would have been sacked.
