Poor Sam Allardyce, he was only trying to wrangle an extra £400,000 as a “keynote speaker” (well they’re valuable – aren’t they?) on top of his modest stipend of £3m as England manager. What’s a chap supposed to live on?
Anyway, adding insult to the injuries heaped on the departed England football manager are – you’ve guessed it – Paddy Power and agency Lucky Generals. In an ad in the Sun, not Sam’s nemesis the Telegraph for some reason.
Wonder what’s in store for stand-in manager Gareth Southgate? Missing that penalty at Euro 96 will be nothing compared to what’s coming..
