Eight Premier League Managers Accused Of Taking Bribes In Wake Of Sam Allardyce's Exit

Sam-Allardyce
Eight English Premier League managers have suddenly found themselves under the spotlight after the investigative report that led to the termination of England manager Sam Allardyce’s contract revealed more ‘rot’ at the top of the English game.
The Daily Telegraph’s ten month investigation managed to film the former England manager attempting to help some supposed businessmen circumvent regulations on signing players, and also agreeing to take a £400,000 contribution to speak at events.
More revelations from the investigation claim eight current or immediate past managers of teams in the English Premier League are also involved in a sort of corrupt racket also involving transfers.
The Telegraph says several filmed conversations with players agents, including one particularly notorious one who is banned in Italy, has uncovered several managers receive ‘bungs’ – which is an unspecified amount of money given illegally to a manager when a player changes clubs.
The banned agent, Pino Pagliari, and two others admitted to the Telegraph that they knew these managers who usually accept the ‘bungs’. Some they claimed they personally paid, either in cash or deposited in bank accounts.

“The LMA is extremely concerned by the current situation of allegations made against a number of managers. We take the allegations very seriously as they are obviously damaging to the game,” a statement from the League Manager’s Association (LMA) read.

“We are in regular communication with The FA to establish the facts relating to those allegations. We know The FA has requested full disclosure, from the Telegraph, of all the relevant information it has and we are working with The FA in dealing with the allegations, following the correct processes and procedures.”
