England Appoints Sunderland Boss Sam Allardyce As New Manager


England have appointed Sunderland manager Sam Allardyce as new national team coach, the Football Association has announced.

Allardyce joins on an initial two year contract, and would have the mandate of qualifying the Three Lions to the next Fifa World Cup in Russia, as well as doing much better at the tournament than his predecessor Hodgson.

England were humiliated at the last European championships after being outclassed by minnows Iceland in the Round of 16. That led to the resignation of Roy Hodgson, and the search for yet another national team manager.

61 year old Allardyce, affectionately known as ‘Big Sam’, is a seasoned English manager who has managed several Premiership clubs including Bolton Wanderers, Newcastle United, Blackburn Rovers and West Ham United.

“I am extremely honoured to be appointed England manager especially as it is no secret that this is the role I have always wanted. For me, it is absolutely the best job in English football.” Allardyce said after his appointment.

“I will do everything I can to help England do well and give our nation the success our fans deserve. Above all, we have to make the people and the whole country proud.” he added.

The new manager’s first game in charge would be a World Cup qualifier against Slovakia in September.
