Allardyce desperate for management return

Former Newcastle and Bolton boss Sam Allardyce has admitted he is ready to get back into management. Allardyce wants the challenge of trying to take a club to a new level.

He told Sky Sports: "It's not my choice. If somebody is sat there looking for somebody to direct a club to some success, perhaps that they have never achieved before.

"I have had my time off, my batteries are charged up and I am absolutely raring to go. But I just have to be given the chance."

Allardyce is not sure of his next destination but would only be interested in taking the reins of an ambitious club.

"Only that it is a club that has some ambition and has seen that we can build something, and we can go on to try and win something if we can, wherever that may be."
