Axed England Boss Sam Allardyce Set to Lose LMA Board Role Following Newspaper Scandal

Published on: 28 September 2016

Disgraced former England manager Sam Allardyce could also lose his placeon theLeague Managers Association board following theTelegraph's undercover investigationearlier this week.

The 61-year-oldleft his post as England manager by 'mutual consent' after videos emerged of him speaking to anundercover reporterin an inappropriate manor.

Allardyce openly criticised former Three Lions boss Roy Hodgson, before admitting to profiting from dodgy third-party transfer deals while in the Premier League.

The damming report has led to senior board members of the LMA becoming 'dismayed' at Allardyce's comments, putting his future in the role in severejeopardy.

Chairman Greg Clarke told theDaily Mirror:I don't know whether he has broken any rules, because the FA disciplinary department will investigate the allegations and make a decision.

The issue for us was one of an employee's behaviour and whether he could carry on as England manager having said some of the things he had said.

He admitted that behaviour was foolish, put his position in jeopardy and we discussed it and he decided to move on.

The allegations will be investigated by the arm's length disciplinary department at the FA and I'll have nothing to do with that, as is quite proper.�

Speaking on Wednesday after being ousted as the England boss, Sam Allardyce told reporters:On reflection, it was a silly thing to do.

The FA can confirm that Sam Allardyce has left his position as @England manager. Full statement:

"I was trying to help someone out I knew for 30 years and unfortunately it was an error in judgement on my behalf. Entrapment has won on this occasion.

The agreement was done very amicably, I apologised to the FA and all concerned for the unfortunate situation I put myself in.�
