Sam Allardyce admits he is 'jealous' of Gareth Southgate leading the Three Lions at Russia World Cup
 
Former England manager Sam Allardyce has admitted to being 'jealous' of Gareth Southgate as the national side prepare for their World Cup campaign.

The 63-year-old was in charge for only one match and 67 days before leaving his role by mutual consent in September 2016.


Allardyce was targeted in a Daily Telegraph investigation into alleged corruption in English football and the departure was announced following crisis talks involving Football Association chairman Greg Clarke and chief executive Martin Glenn.

The Telegraph, as part of a wide-ranging operation, covertly filmed Allardyce making a variety of indiscreet and controversial comments to undercover reporters posing as businessmen, and the FA said that his conduct was 'inappropriate of the England manager.'

The former Crystal Palace and Everton boss feels he should still be in charge of England and, in a BBC documentary to be aired on Sunday, said: 'Jealous is what I feel. Massively disappointed. That should be me there. Unfortunately because of the circumstances that wasn't the case.


'One night I was playing golf - next day they said you can't carry on. And I still don't know why... because in the cold light of day, there was no substance, nothing behind it.
'If a bit more time was taken, a bit more patience, I believe I should still be the England manager.
'I've bounced back now - and while I will be extremely jealous I will be watching Gareth and the lads and hope they do extremely well.'
