Sam Allardyce has resigned as England manager by mutual consent. after two months six days in office.

The former Sunderland chief, 61 – who has only taken charge of ONE game – departed after being caught on camera trying to land a £400,000 deal in advising an undercover reporter how to dodge third-party ownership rules.

An FA statement said Allardyce's conduct "was inappropriate" and Gareth Southgate will take temporary charge. The full statement read:

"The FA can confirm that Sam Allardyce has left his position as England manager.

"Allardyce's conduct, as reported today, was inappropriate of the England manager. He accepts he made a significant error of judgement and has apologised. However, due to the serious nature of his actions, The FA and Allardyce have mutually agreed to terminate his contract with immediate effect.

"This is not a decision that was taken lightly but The FA's priority is to protect the wider interests of the game and maintain the highest standards of conduct in football. The manager of the England men's senior team is a position which must demonstrate strong leadership and show respect for the integrity of the game at all times.

"Gareth Southgate will take charge of the men's senior team for the next four matches against Malta, Slovenia, Scotland and Spain whilst The FA begins its search for the new England manager.

"The FA wishes Sam well in the future."

Allardyce, 61, is also alleged to have used his role to negotiate a deal worth £400,000 to represent a Far East firm.
