​BREAKING NEWS: Sam Allardyce leaves position as England manager after just one game in charge

Sam Allardyce, who was at the helm of the England job for 67 days, has vacated his position by mutual consent after discussions with the FA on Tuesday.
The 61-year-old’s departure comes in the wake of a sting operation conducted by undercover journalists working for the Daily Telegraph .

A report in the newspaper claimed that Allardyce had told the reporters it was possible to “get around” an FA rule, introduced in 2008, banning third parties from owning part of a player’s economic rights.

In a statement, the FA also confirmed that Gareth Southgate will take charge of the team for the next four matches against Malta, Slovenia, Scotland and Spain.
