Sam Allardyce has spoken directly to the press for the first time since he was mutually sacked as England manager on Tuesday night.
Door-stepped outside his house in Bolton, the 61-year-old aired a few parting thoughts before darting off on holiday.
Asked if it would be his last job in management, Allardyce replied: “Who knows? We’ll wait and see.”
He then admitted it was a “silly thing to do” before admonishing the manner in which his demise came about.
Unfortunately it was an error of judgement on my behalf.
I’ve paid the consequences. Entrapment has won on this occasion and I have to accept that.
The complete absence of contrition is hardly a surprise, but now is hardly the time to go playing the victim.
Asked if he was being greedy, Allardyce simply walked away without an answer.
A career-defining moment if ever there was one.
