67 days after being hired, Sam Allardyce has been shown the door from the England Manager post.

Allardyce, whose arrival at the English National Team was incredibly hyped by the English media, was fired after investigative reporters for the Telegraph posed as investors and caught him offering them a shady deal.

Allardyce offered to help them get around the third party ownership rules that have been in football for a while; the third party rules that accounted for Tevez/ transfers to West Ham, Manchester United and Manchester City.

Allardyce, who was being paid 3 million pounds a year (Kshs. 426  million), offered the service for 400,000 pounds (Kshs. 5.68 million) ; it’s crazy how a desire to earn 400,000 pounds on the side ended up costing him his reputation; it is now unlikely that he will get another reputable job in the years to come.
