Big Sam Rules Out Lancashire Return

30 December 2010 02:24
Not that Preston were ever in the running but Sam Allardyce has declared his hand by saying that he will not be joining Burnley or Preston to fill the vacant managerial posts. Sources close to Big Sam suggest that he wants a swift return to football but understandably he wants to take charge at a top flight club after spending the past decade managing in the Premier League. It is unlikely that Preston would have been able to meet any wage demands of the former caretaker manager and funds would have been very limited in terms of bringing players in.
