Alan Shearer, Rio Ferdinand, Robbie Savage and Danny Mills are among the high-profile names weighing in on the news of Sam Allardyce’s sacking.
Allardyce was sacked after just 67 days in charge after a Telegraph sting. (Read that story HERE!)
What they said:
Ex-England striker Alan Shearer: ‘I’m angry, I’m sad, I’m staggered at the misjudgement from a guy who said this was his dream job.’
Former England defender Rio Ferdinand: ‘The England job has become a farce …. comical even.’
Former Wales midfielder Robbie Savage: ‘I’ve got a little bit of sympathy for him, but he gave the FA no choice.’
Former England defender Danny Mills: ‘I don’t think fans will be annoyed that he is explaining how to get around rules, I think it is more that he was chasing money around the world when the focus should have been on the England job.’
