Sam Allardyce Rules Out Taking Huddersfield Town Job

Sam Allardyce insists he is not in contention to replace David Wagner at Huddersfield Town.

Wagner parted ways with the Terriers on Monday as they played a stalemate with relegation rival Cardiff City. With Huddersfield deeply submerged in the relegation battle, Allardyce could have been the best choice to bail out the side.

The veteran manager does have a pretty envious record when it comes to saving clubs from getting demoted to the Championship. The former England manager made a name for himself as he helped Crystal Palace and Sunderland to retain their Premier League status pretty successfully but he has ruled out a return to management at Huddersfield.

“I had a spell [as a player] at Huddersfield I really enjoyed [1984-85] and the football club has got great history.

“They made massive progression under David over the last two or three seasons.

“They made massive progression under David over the last two or three seasons.

“When you look at a football club that is in distress, you look about what you could do differently to that previous manager, if you went into the football club.

“The difficulty for me, with Huddersfield particularly, is that no matter what magic I may be able to derive, they have not got enough goals to get them out of trouble.

“The team plays well enough and creates chances but it does not score the goals from the chances it creates, which means losses instead of draws and draws instead of wins.

“That is why they are rock-bottom of the table and I don’t think I could change that situation.

“So, for me, it is not the right match.”
