Sam Allardyce turns down Newcastle United approach to return as manager

Former England boss Sam Allardyce says he turned down the chance to return to Newcastle United as the club's manager.

Allardyce was in charge of the Magpies from 2007 to 2008 and was considered as a replacement for Rafael Benitez, who left the club at the end of June.

Benitez departed after his contract expired, saying the Premier League club "did not share his vision".

"I was very flattered that I was considered but it's that thing - don't go back," Allardyce told Talksport.

"It never got to the type of talks people are suggesting but it wasn't for me. I politely said no."

Sheffield Wednesday boss Steve Bruce is the latest name being considered by Newcastle owner Mike Ashley.

"I never got to talk to Mike," added Allardyce, whose last managerial post in the Premier League was at Everton.

"My agent contacted me, I had a think about it and a quick look at the situation and thanked them very much.

"It's not for me. Maybe if it was the first time around I would have jumped at it.

"I appreciate the offer but I was surprised - I've not worked for a full season."

Gerrard now Allardyce have turned them down...Ashley has really sh*t a brick with his investment. The Guy has delusions of Grandeur when it comes to his valuation of the club with nobody wanting to touch them. I think the recent gossip about the Arabs wanting to buy them, was hyped more than was warranted.

Yeah, Ashley must have told him there was no money for his wheeler dealing, he was sacked by Ashley already, so he knew what he was being offered.

Looks like Steve Bruce will get it now.

Get the money on them getting relegated. Anything over 2/1 is good odds.

Ashley probably taking them for a ride with his valuation of the club.

Is Sports Direct doing that bad?
