Sam-Allardyce-1

Sam Allardyce has admitted he is “deeply disappointed” following his dismissal as England boss.

The Three Lions chief left his position on Tuesday evening after crunch talks with FA bosses.

Allardyce’s exit comes on the back of remarks about the FA’s rules on third party ownership in an undercover sting by the Daily Telegraph.

Allardyce is understood to have offered his resignation as the FA deemed his job untenable.

In his statement, Allardyce admitted he ‘regretted’ his comments.

Full statement

“Further to recent events, The FA and I have mutually agreed to part company.

“It was a great honour for me to be appointed back in July and I am deeply disappointed at this outcome.

“This afternoon, I met with Greg Clarke and Martin Glenn and offered a sincere and wholehearted apology for my actions.

“Although it was made clear during the recorded conversations that any proposed arrangements would need The FA’s full approval, I recognise I made some comments which have caused embarrassment.

“As part of today’s meeting, I was asked to clarify what I said and the context in which the conversations took place. I have co-operated fully in this regard.

“I also regret my comments with regard to other individuals.”
