At the end of september got Allardyce after only 67 days and one international game as coach of England. 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.

Allardyce felt it framed, but saw through the scandal of no other solution than a blow. Barely a day after disclosure of the scandal, he left “in good mutual agreement” with the FA.

Crystal Palace offers Allardyce the chance of rehabilitation. Earlier it was ‘Big Sam’ in the Premier League coach of Newcastle United, Sunderland, West Ham United, Bolton Wanderers and Blackburn Rovers.
