‘Entrapment Has Won And I Have To Accept That’ – Sam Allardyce Faces Press For First Time Since England Dismissal (Video)

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.

    Thanks God he’s left. Being brazilian, I was worried that England would win the next World Cup with such a victorious manager. I heard he was almost second division champion once and managed such big clubs like Bolton, Newcastle and Notts County. Just… wow. You lost a trully great manager. Now we can all go back to blame Wayne Rooney for an eventual elimination at group stages.

    LOL … yeah, shift the blame. Also, many people are screaming ‘entrapment.’ They need only google (or, *gasp*, read the dictionary) to see that this was most definitely NOT entrapment.

    And anyone naive enough to think that these reporters randomly chose to go after a squeaky clean guy who would otherwise have not done anything, you’re having a laugh …

    It’s all Wayne Rooney’s fault! overrated!
