Real Madrid on alert as Blackburn sack Sam Allardyce

Are Rovers’ new owners looking to replace him with Maradona?

Sam Allardyce

Sam Allardyce, September 2010:

I’m not suited to Bolton or Blackburn, I would be more suited to Inter or Real Madrid. It wouldn’t be a problem to me to go and manage those clubs because I would win the double or the league every time.

Jose – you might as well start packing your bags now, mate.

Blackburn Rovers’ new owners, Indian chicken giants Venky’s Group, stamped their mark on the club in an extreme way yesterday, by handing Fat Sam his P45 despite only being three points off 7th.

56-year-old Allardyce has been given the boot along with assistant manger Neil McDonald after a bad spell of three losses from five games, with Venky’s claiming the move was part of ‘wider plans and ambitions for the club.’

Although the clueless lunatics (“we want good football and Blackburn to be fourth or fifth in the league – or even better“) have stated they’re on the hunt for a British manager, it hasn’t stopped the good gentlemenfolk of the press suggesting Diego Maradona could be next to rock up at Ewood Park.

Mirror Football have quoted ‘an Indian insider’ as saying:

Maradona is seen as the right profile for the VH Group. He could be offered the manager’s job, the general manager’s job or even technical director.

Just what the hell is going on with the Premier League right now?

    he’s did a great job with bolton, a pretty good job with blackburn, not so well with newcastle. He’ll probably get a job with West Ham, and eventually get a chacne to coach england down the line but he will NEVER coach Inter or Real. EVER.

    Big Sam is a class manager who was not given the time to prove himself at Newcastle neither was he given that greater transfer kitty. As for his time at Bolton= awsum and at Blackburn = pretty good and they were on to something with him at the rhelm. He should of got the nod ahead of Mclaren for england job and lets face he wudnt of screwed it up like Mclaren did. I reckon he could do a good job for a big eurpoean team like a bayern munich or a roma, juventus. Real are different gravy. Inter Milan wouldnt be too tough for him either judging on how rafa is struggling with them at present. Big Sam is a class manager and it is Blackburns loss!
