Sam Allardyce quits Crystal Palace
Sam Allardyce has resigned as manager of Crystal Palace and says he has “no ambition to take another job” in football.

Allardyce told Palace owner Steve Parish of his desire to leave the club during a meeting in central London on Tuesday.

The 62-year-old signed a two-and-a-half-year deal when he was appointed as Palace boss in December – less than three months after leaving his role with England – and managed to keep the club in the Premier League, lifting them from 17th to 14th.

Allardyce inspired Palace to six wins from eight matches, including victories over Chelsea, Arsenal and Liverpool, to help them preserve their top-flight status with a 14th-place finish.

In doing so, Allardyce maintained his record of having never been relegated from the Premier League.
