Allardyce reveals he turned down Newcastle job offer

But with Bruce seemingly set on managing the Magpies, an opportunity he might never get again, Chansiri is at risk of souring his relationship with the popular Sheffield Wednesday boss, should he get him to stay put.

Whilst The Mail said he'd turned it down because of "an issue over the club's recruitment policy and a concern that Allardyce would have little if any say over signings", Sam Allardyce claimed it was one of those "never go back" moments/issues. I politely said "no". My agent contacted me, I had a think about it and a quick look at the situation and thanked them very much.

"It's not for me".

"Maybe if it was the first time around I'd have jumped at it, but not now". I appreciate the offer.

"It wasn't something I thought about for too long". The next season they spent £100million [with his successor Marco Silva in charge] and finished eighth'.

Steve Bruce could cost Newcastle United "more than £5 million" after asking permission from Sheffield Wednesday to speak to his boyhood club, according to the Times. I thought it'd be better to make a quick decision for everyone.

The former Magpies manager claimed Sheffield Wednesday fans should be anxious about their team losing their manager as he thinks Bruce would jump at the chance to succeed Benitez if his current club doesn't stand in his way.

On his previous stint on Tyneside, Allardyce explained: "It wasn't pleasant in the end but it was in the middle of the takeover".

He said in February this year: "Everybody walks around talking about, "Sam Allardyce's style is not good enough, he doesn't play the right way" and so on and so forth and it is a massive problem for me".

"As much as I respect Newcastle, Newcastle fans and Mike it wasn't for me".
