West Ham vice-chairman Karen Brady has revealed that the club’s former manager Sam Allardyce always wanted to manage the England national team. Hence, she expects Allardyce to do well in his new role.
The former Bolton Wanderers manager is known for keeping clubs like Newcastle, West Ham, and Sunderland afloat in the Premier League against all the odds. He was seen as an inferior candidate to the established crop of international managers like Vicente del Bosque of Spain. However, he was the number one choice for the national team as soon as Roy Hodgson quit the role after the Euro 2016.
