The British tabloid claims that the Englishman’s “advisors have been sounding out jobs in the USA”, although there are no vacancies at the moment.
It has also been reported that the current West Ham boss has always “fancied a new challenge” and is open to the idea of managing a team in Major League Soccer.
West Ham United situation
Allardyce’s current contract with West Ham runs out at the end of the season, and no new deal is in place.
With the Hammers struggling for points and for form for most of the second half of the campaign, one will wonder if the club’s bosses will be willing to hand him a new contract.
Although the former Newcastle United manager has done a good job at the Boleyn Ground since taking over in the summer of 2011, there are doubts that he is not the right man to take the club forward.
West Ham have ambitions of playing in Europe in the coming years, and perhaps Allardyce is not the man to fulfil that objective.
