And although he has just nine months left on his contract he still hasn’t been offered another.
Allardyce is the subject of a major spread in The Sun today and says it’s up to his team to show he’s worth a new deal.
He said: “I’ve not been offered anything but it’s not an issue, like it wasn’t last time.
“The team will speak for itself with results and that will put me in a position to make the owners want to start negotiations if and when they are ready.
“I’m not saying whether I want to stay or not. If I say I want to stay and three or four results go against me and I get the bullet, then it sounds silly.
“What I will say is I’m comfortable with my life, myself and the job I’m doing working with the players.”
