Sam Allardyce has told reporters that he will be on holiday as his future is decided next week.
He used his London Evening Standard column to say:
“My future at West Ham will be decided after this weekend, I will be on holiday with my grandchildren, something I’m looking forward to immensely, but my representatives will be talking to the club. There’s nothing more I can say on that. I’m not in control of the situation so we’ll just wait and see.”
Speaking to reporters earlier he added:
“My future will be sorted out one way or the other on Monday,” said Allardyce. “I am going away with my grandchildren to Spain, but my agent will be available to speak to the owners. It will be the owners’ decision. The speculation has possibly affected the players a bit, with all the other names of managers who are being linked to the job. I’m sure Carlo Ancelotti will be the next name, but I cannot affect that.”
