Sam Allardyce turned down summer switch to Turkey

Sam Allardyce turned down the opportunity to make a swift return to management in the summer after rejecting the chance to enter into the international arena with Turkey, following his surprise decision to leave Crystal Palace.

Back in May Allardyce closed the curtains on his managerial career after he chose to step down from his post at Palace, having saved the Eagles from the dreaded drop out of the Premier League.

However, a couple of months later Turkey looked to test Allardyce’s retirement vow after parting ways with boss Fatih Terim after television footage emerged of the former AC Milan manager involved in a scrap with a restaurant owner.

But Turkey’s ambitious approach - likely to have been more in hope that expectation, - proved to be unsuccessful as Big Sam opted to stick to his promise of spending more time with his friends and family.

Despite his retirement Allardyce continues to be linked with a return to the managerial arena.

Allardyce’s replacement at Palace, Frank de Boer, lasted only four league games in the dugout, before being savagely discarded by the club. The 62-year-old was inevitably linked with an instant return to the Eagles, but ruled himself out of the running, with another former England boss in Roy Hodgson appointed instead.

Meanwhile, a vacancy could soon be opening up on Merseyside at Everton, whose boss Ronald Koeman is currently the odds-on favourite for the sack. For those interested Allardyce is priced at 12/1 to replace him in the Next Everton Manager Market.
