Former England Manager Sam Allardyce Rejects Newcastle Approach


Sam Allardyce has turned down an opportunity to become the next Newcastle United manager.

Allardyce managed Newcastle from 2007 to 2008, but has rejected an opportunity to take over from Rafa Benitez, who left St. James’ Park last month.

“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’.”

Reports suggest Steve Bruce is one of the frontrunners for the vacant managerial position at Newcastle and Allardyce thinks the Sheffield United boss would welcome the opportunity to manage a side in the top flight.

“If he gets offered the job I’ll think he’ll jump at the chance,” Allardyce said. “I think it would be one of his dreams to manage his hometown club.”
