Sky pundit Graeme Souness has questioned the wisdom of letting Sam Allardyce leave West Ham.
“Is it the right thing for West Ham? Are West Ham going to jump from where they are now to being a club that can challenge for the Champions League places? That’s not going to happen overnight.” Souness told Sky Sports viewers on Sunday.
“Sam knows his way around the Premier League. Tried and trusted. It’s one of those. Be careful what you wish for.’
“From my time of football I’m fed up of hearing [about] the West Ham way. What is the West Ham way? They are a yoyo club. I think it’s a club that by moving to the Olympic Stadium could go to another level but there’s no guarantee of that.”
