English FA sack coach Sam Allardyce after just one game following scandal

The English football association has decided to part ways with coach Sam Allardyce after the manager was videoed agreeing a £400,000 deal with under cover reporters who posed as agents from Far East. See the full story here. Sam Allardyce in a statement said:
"Further to recent events, The FA and I have mutually agreed to part company."It was a great honour for me to be appointed back in July and I am deeply disappointed at this outcome.
"This afternoon, I met with Greg Clarke and Martin Glenn and offered a sincere and wholehearted apology for my actions. "Although it was made clear during the recorded conversations that any proposed arrangements would need The FA’s full approval, I recognise I made some comments which have caused embarrassment. "As part of today’s meeting, I was asked to clarify what I said and the context in which the conversations took place. I have co-operated fully in this regard. "I also regret my comments with regard to other individuals."
