Ex-England coach Allardyce won't rule out returning to football

Former England coach Sam Allardyce won't rule out returning to football.

Allardyce left his role in disgrace on Tuesday after 67 days following a newspaper report that he had offered advice on how to "get around" player transfer rules.

But when asked if it was his last job in management, the 61-year-old said: "Who knows? We'll wait and see."

Allardyce acknowledged it was a "silly thing to do" but was critical of the way his wrongdoing was uncovered.

The former Bolton, West Ham and Sunderland boss said: "Unfortunately it was an error of judgment on my behalf.

"I've paid the consequences. Entrapment has won on this occasion and I have to accept that."
