FOOTBALL- Former England manager Sam Allardyce said he was disappointed after being sacked as Everton manager.

The 63 year old was at helm for less than six months. He was brought in Ronald Koeman’s replacement in November but his ways did not go down well with fans of the Merseyside club.

Allardyce said he was disappointed with the way his exit came about.

"I'm surprised how it came about. It seemed to be done and dusted through the media before I met Farhad," he told talkSPORT radio. 

"I think it was out there in the open for a couple of days. That leaves you with the certainty of what was going to happen.

"It was slightly disappointing. Who was involved in that I couldn't tell you, but something as delicate as that is something you want to be confidential."

Former Watford and Hull City manager Marco Silva is the favourite to replace him.
