West Ham United manager Sam Allardyce has revealed he would like to manage Manchester United someday.
The former Bolton Wanderers, Blackburn Rovers and Newcastle United boss enjoyed a good first half of the campaign with the Hammers but his side have dropped off in recent weeks.
Following a 1-1 draw with Man United earlier this season, Allardyce mocked Louis van Gaal’s long-ball tactics which didn’t go down too well with the Dutchman and led to him handing a dossier to journalists in a press conference to disprove Allardyce’s comments.
Allardyce had a warm relationship with Sir Alex Ferguson back when he was United boss and in an interview on BT Sport’s The Clare Balding Show, the West Ham boss revealed United was always his dream job.
Where do we begin with this? Sam Allardyce in charge of United? Imagine! Actually, no, don’t.
Who knows, if it all goes pear-shaped with van Gaal in the final few games of the season then maybe Allardyce will get his big chance.
Under his leadership, United would surely get back to the very top of world football. In fact, why hasn’t Ed Woodward called him already?
