Allardyce reveals he turned down Newcastle job offer

Allardyce reveals he turned down Newcastle job offer”

The Mail had the exclusive (see below) and said that Allardyce had turned Mike Ashley down.

The club are hopeful of concluding a deal in the coming days for Bruce to succeed Rafa Benitez so he can join the squad on their pre-season tour of China, which begins on Saturday.

By happy "coincidence", Sam Allardyce was scheduled to be on Talksport on Thursday morning.

"The fans are a bit more tolerant now".

"I politely said no and moved on".

"It's that thing [in your mind]. don't go back".

Newcastle hope to iron out the remaining details as quickly as possible and will endeavour to ensure Bruce is able to meet the players for the first time in China next week. I appreciate the offer.

On his previous stint on Tyneside, Allardyce explained: "It wasn't pleasant in the end but it was in the middle of the takeover". It was handled brilliantly by Mike and his staff at the time.

"I think he should, I think it's been one of your dreams to manager his hometown club". I thought it'd be better to make a quick decision for everyone.

'Newcastle United offered Sam Allardyce a surprise return as manager last week, Sportsmail can reveal, but the former England boss has rejected the opportunity.

Bruce was only appointed Wednesday gaffer in January, but it's believed he has asked the club's chairman to be allowed to speak to the Premier League team.

Allardyce, who was in charge of the Magpies from 2007 to 2008, was considered as a potential replacement for Benitez who left when his contract expired in June.

But there was an issue over the club's recruitment policy and a concern that Allardyce would have little if any say over signings.
