Allardyce QUITS as England boss with immediate effect

Sam Allardyce has sensationally quit as England boss just
67 days and one match after being appointed to the £3m a
year post.

This follows an investigation by The Daily Telegraph which
revealed he used his position to negotiate a £400,000 deal
and give advice to businessmen on how to get around
Football Association rules on player transfers.

FA chairman Greg Clarke and chief executive Martin Glenn
held an emergency meeting with Allardyce at Wembley
Stadium today during which, it is believed, the 61-year-old
offered to stop down rather than be sacked, and in doing so
became the shortest serving England manager.

In a statement, the FA said: "Allardyce's conduct, as
reported today, was inappropriate of the England manager.
"He accepts he made a significant error of judgement and
has apologised. However, due to the serious nature of his
actions, The FA and Allardyce have mutually agreed to
terminate his contract with immediate effect."
