Newcastle United next manager: Sam Allardyce confirms he turned down Magpies approach

11 July, 2019, 18:37 | Author: Heidi Alvarez

Allardyce, who was in charge of the Magpies from 2007 to 2008, was considered as a potential replacement for Benitez who left when his contract expired in June.

With pre-season underway, the managerless club are looking to appoint their seventh permanent head coach under controversial owner Mike Ashley and the 11th overall including interim bosses.

Sam Allardyce has revealed he turned down the chance to take the vacant manager's job at Newcastle.

But with Bruce seemingly set on managing the Magpies, an opportunity he might never get again, Chansiri is at risk of souring his relationship with the popular Sheffield Wednesday boss, should he get him to stay put. I had to chat to my agent and, as much as I respect Newcastle, Newcastle fans and Mike [Ashley, Newcastle owner], it wasn't for me. I politely said "no".

"It's that thing [in your mind]. don't go back".

Newcastle hope to iron out the remaining details as quickly as possible and will endeavour to ensure Bruce is able to meet the players for the first time in China next week. I appreciate the offer, but I was surprised, I've not worked for a full season. I was very flattered that I was being considered. It was better that I made a quick decision for everybody because they're in pre-season now. "[It was] not for me".

Should Bruce become the new gaffer at St James' Park, the former Sunderland manager would replace Rafa Benitez following the Spaniard leaving his post for pastures new and lot's of pennies in China.

"As we all know from experience, in football, just as in everyday life, when people show you respect and affection and do everything they can to make things easier for you, life is much happier, even when you face hard moments".
