‘Big Sam’ mentioned as contender to become manager of Premier League club

Posted by

Sam Allardyce is reportedly in the frame to replace Daniel Farke as manager of Norwich City.

Allardyce has, or ‘Big Sam’ as he is currently referred to, has been out of work ever since leaving West Brom in June.

He lost his incredible record of never being relegated from the Premier League after failing to keep the Baggies up.

His win percentage of just 15.4% was the lowest of his managerial career. It was a tenure to forget, all things considered.

Still, that doesn’t appear to have been the final nail in his top-flight managerial career. The bookies don’t think so, anyway.

According to The Sun, Big Sam (10/1) is ranked as the fourth favourite to replace Daniel Farke as Norwich City manager.

The three above him are Chris Wilder (3/1), Lucien Favre (8/1) and John Terry (9/1).

In truth, none of those three have any real experience when it comes to Premier League relegation battles.

Keeping Norwich from plunging back down into the Championship looks as though it’s an impossible task at this point.

However, if there was any man who’d be up to the challenge, it’s Sam Allardyce.
