Newcastle United has today oficially announced the end of Sam Allardyce career at Newcastle United. From the official site they said that the decision has been reached by mutual agreement and United First Team coach Nigel Pearson will take charge of the team for Saturday's game at Manchester United.
“Mike and I would like to place on record our thanks for Sam's efforts and wish him well for the future.” Newcastle United Chairman Chris Mort said, “A new manager has not yet been appointed at Newcastle United. We will make a further announcement on the managerial position when appropriate.”
“I am disappointed to be leaving Newcastle United but I wish the Club all the best for the remainder of the season and for the future.” Big Sam said.
I'm really shocked by the club decision, and feels very sorry for Big Sam. He has all the difficult times since taking the job at United last summer. With his departure, there's only one name so far who could be his successor, and maybe Alan Shearer finally say something to United board of Directors and he will take the hot seat soon.
Farewell Big Sam!
