Sam Allardyce named England manager

The FA have today appointed Sunderland boss Sam Allardyce as the new England manager.

The 61-year-old succeeds Roy Hodgson who quit after England’s Euro 2016 elimination at the hands of Iceland.

“It is no secret that this is the role I have always wanted. For me, it is absolutely the best job in English football,” he said.

The former Bolton, Newcastle, Blackburn and West Ham manager has signed an initial two-year deal and becomes England’s 14th permanent manager.

His first game in charge will be a friendly on September 1st at Wembley.

Allardyce has yet to win a trophy as manager, his major successes have instead come in the form of two promotions, first with Bolton in 2001 and most recently with West Ham in 2012.
