Allardyce on England exit: Entrapment has won…

Sam Allardyce was defiant regarding his recent dismissal as England manager.

The 61-year-old was forced to resign by the Football Association after a dodgy deal regarding player transfer rules in England, uncovered by the Daily Telegraph, was negotiated with fake businessmen.

Allardyce feels he was duped by the sting but suggests he could one day return to the management caper despite his name now being heavily tarnished.

"Who knows," he said. "We'll wait and see.

"Entrapment has won on this occasion. I have to accept that."

Allardyce, who left Sunderland to take the England job, lasted just 67 days in the role, winning his only match in charge against Slovakia in World Cup qualifying earlier this month.
