Downing: West Ham players want Allardyce to stay

West Ham United midfielder Stewart Downing wants manager Sam Allardyce to stay in charge next season.

Downing says the locker room are behind the gaffer.

"We'd like him to stay. We don't know what the situation is.

"It's going to be resolved at the end of the season as he said yesterday I think. The only thing we can do is win games.

"This puts him in a stronger position to keep his job. Obviously he is disappointed today because wins help. Losing games and drawing games probably won't help him.

"Like I said, we are disappointed today. Whatever will be will be at the end of the season. I'm sure he'll want to get it sorted as soon as he can."
