London, ENGLAND: Sam Allardyce reign as the England manager came to an end just 67 days after replacing Roy Hodgson at the helm.

As confirmed by England football governing body FA on Tuesday evening, the former Newcastle United and Bolton manager opted out on a mutual agreement after talks with his bosses.

This comes a result of the allegations that he discussed how to circumvent rules on player transfers while speaking to undercover Daily Telegraph reporters, reports the Sky sports.

A video footage released Monday by the Telegraph also appeared to show Allardyce mocking predecessor Roy Hodgson, calling Prince Harry “a very naughty boy” and accusing the FA of being “all about making money”.

Allardyce known by his nickname The Big Sam, landed his dream job following the resignation of Roy Hodgson who stepped aside after England’s dismal performance in the July Euro 2016.

He would then guide England to one match on his record, this month’s World Cup qualifying win in Slovakia.

England U21 manager Gareth Southgate has been appointed interim boss for the next four matches, starting with next month’s World Cup Qualifiers against Malta and Slovenia.
