Allardyce wants FA to go English
Sam Allardyce
Allardyce is proud of his record at Bolton
Sam Allardyce would feel let down if the Football Association appointed a foreign manager to succeed England boss Sven-Goran Eriksson.

Bolton manager Allardyce told The Sunday Mirror: "I would feel betrayed if the FA chose a foreign manager.

"Sven was the right man at the time, but the job must go to an Englishman."

Allardyce is sure he is the man for the job: "I don't think there is another manager in this country who has achieved as much as I have."

Allardyce added: "That might sound big-headed to others but, if you compare the money we have all spent on players and wages, pound for pound my record's as good as anyone's.

"If you had a league table based on money spent and the relative success achieved, I'd think Bolton would be top of it every year.

"Chelsea have spent 270m. If I had spent that amount I'd guarantee winning the title every year. That would be the minimum requirement.

"Certainly if I finish in a Champions League spot this season then I'd like to think that would strengthen my chances of becoming England manager."
