Sam Allardyce sacked as England manager - Twitter reacts

England manager Sam Allardyce has been sacked by the FA just 67 days into his four year contract having left Sunderland to take the role. Having been embroiled in a corruption scandal, in which he was filmed talking about third party ownership, gambling and the failure of Roy Hodgson and Gary Neville at Euro 2016, his position was decided to be untenable.

The former Bolton manager will go down in history as the only England manager to have a 100% win record after the victory over Slovakia gave him a 1-0 win with Adam Lallana the only man to score under his regime. He also takes the record for the shortest stint in charge as permanent manager of England.

Allardyce was a controversial appointment given his reputation as somewhat of a footballing dinosaur and his naivety saw the end of his tenure come prematurely. Now however, Gareth Southgate will take permanent charge for the next four fixtures as he steps up from the under 21s as a caretaker manager until a new permanent appointment is made.

The early favourites include Southgate, Steve Bruce and Alan Pardew as it seems as though another English manager will be appointed, with USA manager Jurgen Klinssman the only candidate not from these shores.
