Sam AllardyceFri 13 Jul
Sam Allardyce has managed a record seven Premier League clubs.
Allardyce made his managerial bow in the Premier League with Bolton Wanderers, where he spent much of his playing career. The Englishman also represented Millwall, Coventry City, Preston North End and even Sunderland between 1980-81.
Having turned his hand to management, Allardyce would achieve promotion to the top flight with Bolton in his second season in charge during the 2000/01 campaign.
After two seasons securing Bolton’s safety in the Premier League, an eighth-place finish followed in the 2003/04 campaign.
That feat was bettered in 2004/05 as Bolton finished sixth in the table and subsequently qualified for the UEFA Europa League.
In 2007 he was appointed Newcastle United manager after eight successful years with Bolton and although he parted company with the Magpies in January 2008, he was back in management in the Premier League with Blackburn Rovers the next season.
Two mid-table finishes followed for Rovers under his guidance before he departed the Lancashire club in December 2010.
Appointed West Ham United manager in June 2011 after the Hammers were relegated from the Premier League, Allardyce was given the job of returning the club straight back to the top flight of English football. click here for more
