Alan Sugar says West Ham have not been fair to Sam Allardyce

Upton Park

The former Tottenham Hotspur chairman has gone on social media to have his say on the situation at West Ham United.

Alan Sugar has taken to Twitter to comment on West Ham United’s treatment of their former manager Sam Allardyce.

The Hammers opted not to renew Allardyce’s contract and the news was announced just minutes after the club’s final game of the season – a 2-0 defeat against Newcastle United.

Allardyce later told the BBC that the decision ‘was mutual’, but that did not stop Lord Sugar from commenting shortly after news broke that West Ham have qualified for next season’s Europa League.

The London club qualified after finishing top of the Fair Play table and as such they will be one of 104 teams entering the competition at the first qualifying stage.

But responding to a report that West Ham’s fair play had earned them a place in Europe, Lord Sugar wrote: “They were not fair to Sam!”

The former chairman of Tottenham Hotspur has made his feelings on the matter clear, but it will be interesting to see who West Ham bring in as Allardyce’s replacement and what Big Sam will do next.
