Sam Allardyce turns down Newcastle United approach to return as manager

11 Juillet, 2019, 18:39 | Auteur: Adelaide Bullion

Writing on his blog for the first time since joining Dalian, Benitez highlighted the warm welcome he had received at the club, in contrast with the hard relationship he endured with Newcastle owner Ashley and his management team.

Incredibly, on their shortlist to replace Benitez was Allardyce, who has to date managed seven Premier League clubs - most recently Everton - and never suffered the ignominy of relegation, but the approach befuddled the one-time England manager, who politely declined.

With the former Sunderland boss looking keen, Newcastle are confident of convincing him to move to the club this summer.

The former Bolton Wanderers, West Ham and England manager spent eight unhappy months in charge of Newcastle before a parting of ways in January 2008.

"I was very flattered that I was considered but it's that thing, don't go back", he revealed.

"I never got to talk to Mike (Ashley, owner of the club)". My agent contacted me, I had a think about it and a quick look at the situation and thanked them very much but (it's) not for me.

It is reported in The Star that the Newcastle born manager (58), will be offered a Premier League salary along with a £60m war-chest in order to try and build a squad capable of being competitive in The Premier League next season.

"I thought it'd be better to make a quick decision for everyone".

Newcastle United are set to appoint Steve Bruce as manager and are hoping he will be able to join up with the team on their pre-season tour of China.

The report says that the Wednesday contract he signed in February contains a hefty compensation clause and the club are ready to play hardball over letting Bruce leave.

But the 58-year-old wants the job and feels he can not resist the lure of the challenge on Tyneside.
