Blackburn boss Allardyce: I would take squad back to Oz

Blackburn Rovers boss Sam Allardyce wants to return to Australia next year with his squad.

Allardyce claimed their participation in the Sydney tournament was more than worthwhile and he would do it again.

He said: "I would be absolutely delighted to come back again next year if we were invited.

"We would look forward to it. We have had a great time.

"The host country has been fantastic and the organisation has been excellent.

"It didn't feel like it after the first game when the lads could barely raise a leg with the jet lag, but we've thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.

"The quality of the teams has been excellent, which is one of the reasons we came, and Sydney (FC) have stood up well to the teams that have come from far and wide."
