Sam Allardyce coy on his future after West Bromwich Albion relegation
Sam Allardyce was coy on his future after suffering the first relegation of his managerial career.
Second-bottom West Bromwich Albion’s fate was confirmed by a 3-1 defeat to Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium yesterday.
Allardyce has a year left on his deal at The Hawthorns, but the former Newcastle United and Sunderland manager said: “I’m not going to answer a question on whether I’m staying or going – it’ll just be a waste of time, because I won’t be saying whether I’m going or staying. It’s too early to consider or talk about. It’s about the disappointment. It’s about having a day or two off, and getting ready for Liverpool.
“The most important thing for me and the players is to give everything we’ve got to try and finish the season with pride in your own performance and your own professionalism.”
Newcastle’s Premier League status will be secure for another season if 18th-placed Fulham fail to beat Burnley at Craven Cottage tonight.
