Wenger Wishes Allardyce Well As Troubled England Boss Knows Fate Tuesday

By Adebayo Williams


Arsenal boss, Arsene Wenger has sent goodwill messages to troubled England boss Sam Allardyce. The former Bolton, West Ham and Newcastle boss is facing the sack after a video surfaced of him advising some disguised middle-east businessmen how to bypass FA transfer rules. Allardyce also took a dig at his predecessor Roy Hodgson. He referred to him as ‘Woy’ saying he had allowed assistant Gary Neville too much space in the team. He said the former Liverpool man should have told Neville to ‘shut up and sit down’ during the team’s 2-1 loss to Iceland at the European Championships in France. He had also said the FA had wasted the over £800 million it spent in renovating the Wembley Stadium.

Wenger also dissociated himself from any wrong doing in the 300 transfers he has overseen as Gunners chief.

“You want the truth to always to come out.

“Our fans can sleep without any problems, that is all I can say. For the rest I don’t know what will come out or who is involved in it, I just care about our own transfers. I have not been approached by anybody.

“When I work for my club I commit 100 per cent to make every right decision for the good of my club. We are not too moralistic we want everyone to work generally for his club, that is normal and the pressure is on everyone to do that in the right way,” he said.

FA chairman Greg Clarke and chief executive Martin Glenn are said to be holding an emergency meeting to decide the manager’s fate.
