Allardyce preys on rehabilitation as manager of Crystal Palace
Sam Allardyce can’t wait to get started at Crystal Palace. Think back to his painful departure as coach of England, the 62-year-old coach would prefer not to.
“Yes, of course, has left its scars. It was a black, dark moment, I wish that it never happened. But I can not there is not too much in linger, I’m not one of the past. I am ‘what can I do in the future?'”, says Allardyce Sunday against Sky Sports.
“I have the goal reached, the ultimate goal, the ultimate dream, although it is not a long time. I’ve met, that no one can me more to take it away. Other reasons, ensured that the FA showed me, not the footballing side.”
At the end of september got Allardyce after only 67 days and one international match as keuzeheer of the ‘Three Lions’. The experienced trainer was discredited by a revealing report from The Daily Telegraph about corruption and fraud in English professional football.
The coach told undercoverjournalisten how the international transfer rules easily circumvented could be. Reporters from the newspaper laid with hidden cameras wired how to Allardyce, good for an annual salary of 3.5 million euros at the FA, said an amount of about 462.000 euros to receive for his advice.
Friday was ‘Big Sam’ by Crystal Palace appointed as successor to the sacked Alan Pardew. That came also to Allardyce himself as a surprise. “I didn’t think there for the new year something would happen. But that is just what has happened, and I’m ready, I look forward to it.”
“Everyone can see this, given my past, as something that I am good at and hopefully I can make it again. I’m going to try with Palace as quickly as possible the way to the top to save.”
Allardyce is Monday already on the bench when Crystal Palace visit Watford. The ‘Eagles’ occupy after seventeen speelrondes only the seventeenth position in the Premier League.
