The new money from foreign investment and TV has added more pressure on Premiership managers, says Newcastle United boss Sam Allardyce.

He said: "There are already lots of managers coming under increasing pressure and we have only got a handful of games played.

"It shows what a volatile world we are living in - because there is more money come into the game, it appears the pressure levels have gone up on the managers already.

"I predicted that way back in May if anybody was listening, and it appears all of a sudden, it's already happening, particularly with (Tottenham boss) Martin Jol."
