Sam Allardyce, Manager of Crystal Palace looks on during the Premier League match between Manchester United and Crystal Palace at Old Trafford on May 21, 2017 in Manchester, England.

Former Hammers boss Sam Allardyce spoke exclusively to talkSPORT this morning about his time in charge of the east London outfit, and admitted that he could never control the club's co-owner David Sullivan.

The West Ham owners have endured heavy criticism from the club's fans for their outspoken manner when it comes to the team's tactics or performances, since their takeover way back in 2010.

The Hammers board appointed David Moyes as the club's new manager on Tuesday, after confirming the sacking of Slaven Bilic on Monday, and the Scot has a tough task on his hands, not just because of the trouble his side are currently in, but with the fact that Sullivan and Gold are so notoriously difficult to work with.

And Allardyce, who spent four years in charge of West Ham, highlighted how Sullivan providing his son Jack with a free reign to tweet about club news was, and always will be, extremely detrimental to the club, when speaking exclusively to talkSPORT:

“I couldn’t control David Sullivan. He is the owner of the football club and however negative you told him those comments might be from Jack, he was always going to give Jack that information and let him tweet it. You pull your hair out at the beginning and in the end you have to accept it for what it is and move on and accept that it is going to happen."

Only time will tell whether Moyes turns out to be a good appointment or not, but he most certainly will not have it easy, that much is for certain.
