Blackburn boss Allardyce fancies political career

Blackburn Rovers boss Sam Allardyce admits he fancies a career in politics.

Allardyce was likened to PM Gordon Brown by Rovers fan Jack Straw this week and he said: "I am in a difficult job but I wouldn't want to be in Gordon's job. I have met him a couple of times and to be compared to any leader of great stature like he is, is bound to be a compliment.

"I wouldn't mind a career in politics but I have never pursued it. But I have an opinion. I went to the 10-year celebration at Wembley and enjoyed the evening and had the pleasure of shaking his hand and meeting him as well as Tony Blair."
