West Ham United boss Sam Allardyce isn't surprised by the rash of sackings in the past week.

Given the huge financial incentives of success in the Premier League following the new broadcast deals, Allardyce is not shocked any more.

"The money is so big that the fear of losing that status of being in the Premier League and losing that revenue is so big now that it causes lots of thinking by owners of football clubs to try and make sure they continue with that type of revenue," he said.

"For Tottenham, it is probably more about budgeting for Champions League football and what that brings on top of what they have spent.

"The removal of managers at this level is probably the highest it has been in the entirety of the Premier League.

"You have to be well aware of that when you step through the door and sit behind the desk, it is all about winning and making sure your team lives up to the reality of where it should be with what is spent and the quality of players you have."
