Sam Allardyce has 'no interest' in Premier League job

Sam Allardyce is not interested in returning to Premier League management and admits he is happy watching football without having to endure the pressure of being a club boss.
Reports in the national press on Tuesday claimed the ex-England boss was under consideration for the Crystal Palace job, should they decide to dispense with Frank de Boer just three matches into the new season.
Allardyce was boss of the Eagles for the second half of last season, following his ill-fated one-game stint as the national team manager.
But speaking on Talksport on Tuesday, the 62-year-old said: "Being associated with any club at this early stage of the season would not be of any interest to me at the moment.
"I have just had a trip to Hawaii watching from afar and I went to watch Manchester United on Saturday, and I wouldn't associate myself with any job at this moment in time.
"Three games into the Premier League season, it is a little hasty when people talk about you coming back into football.
"At this moment in time, I am very comfortable in my life. My time in the Premier League for many, many years has been tremendously exciting and I have enjoyed every minute.
"But having a break from football is the right thing for me to do.
"I am just watching Premier League football with great interest, watching how it is panning out, and not living under the pressures that every manager in the Premier League is."
Under Dutchman De Boer, Palace have lost all three league matches including home fixtures against Huddersfield and Swansea - and they are yet to score a goal in 270 minutes.
