Sam Allardyce Quits As England Manager

Sam Allardyce agreed to leave top England role by 'mutual consent' last night, following expose by the Telegraph.
Sam Allardcye's reign as England manager has come to end, after only 67 days and one game.
In an exclusive report in Tuesday's Daily Telegraph, the former Bolton Wanderers player and manager was caught on camera revealing how to get around FA rules in regards to player transfers.
The story was run by undercover reporters who met Allardyce at the San Carlo restaurant in Manchester.
The reporters posed as businessman of a fictitious Far East firm who would require Allardyce to travel to Hong Kong and Singapore to meet with investors for a fee of £400,000.
Allardyce met with the FA on Tuesday to discuss the conduct of his actions. It became public knowledge late in the evening that both the FA and Allardyce came to a mutual agreement to terminate his contract as England manager.
Gareth Southgate, the current under-21 manager, will now take the position of care-taker manager for the next four England games, against Malta, Slovenia, Scotland and Spain.
