Former West Ham Manager Sam Allardyce told the BBC following the announcement that his contract will not be renewed:
“I think it’s probably right for both of us at this moment in time to move on.
Asked if he planned to be back in work by August, he said: “No, I’m looking for a break well beyond that.
“Recharging your batteries – if and when you come back if you have recharged your batteries, you are much better prepared to carry on doing the job at this level of football.
“It depends whether it’s a year or whether it falls around Christmas time, or whoever might fall into trouble, whatever job you fancy doing.
“It’s not just a job I’m after, it’s he right job if it comes along. I certainly won’t be doing that in the next few weeks. You can never say never, but I can’t see myself in charge of another football club for the start of next season.”
