Allardyce Says Newcastle Offered Him Job


Sam Allardyce has said that Newcastle United offered him the manager’s job following the exit of Rafael Benitez. Newcastle are currently facing a challenging situation following the departures of Benitez and attackers Ayoze Perez and Salomon Rondon who were the club’s two most prolific attackers during the past season.

The Magpies will be among the favourites to get relegated next season due to their current situation.

“I was very flattered that I was considered but it’s that thing… don’t go back,” Allardyce told talkSPORT. “It never got to the type of talks people are suggesting – but it wasn’t for me. I politely said ‘no’.

“I never got to talk to Mike [Ashley]. My agent contacted me, I had a think about it and a quick look at the situation and thanked them very much but it’s not for me.

“Maybe if it was the first time around I would have jumped at it. I appreciate the offer but I was surprised, I’ve not worked for a full season.”
