Newcastle boss Allardyce unhappy with Pearce over Taylor injury

Newcastle United boss Sam Allardyce is unhappy with England U21 coach Stuart Pearce after Steven Taylor returned from Portugal this week with a back injury.

Allardyce said: "From my point of view, he should not have been selected by (manager) Stuart (Pearce) and the medical team.

"It should not have been his decision, it should have been the medical staff and Stuart's not to risk him."
