After failing to prevent Leeds United’s relegation, “Big Sam” Sam Allardyce, 69, has left the club in disgrace as the English Premier League’s (EPL) shortest-serving manager.

According to the BBC, Allardyce left Leeds United, who were relegated from the EPL to the Championship, after four games in charge.

“It has been a privilege to be the manager of Leeds, a great club with amazing fans, and I wish them a speedy return to the EPL,” he said.

“I would like to thank Sam Allardyce for his bravery and for doing everything he could to save us,” said Angus Kinnear, CEO of Leeds United.

Leeds are expected to name a new manager in the near future.

Meanwhile, Allardyce has become the shortest-serving EPL manager in history, according to the BBC. He held the reins for 30 days between May 3 and June 2, 2023, before stepping down.

That’s an ignominious record, surpassing the likes of Les Reed (Charlton, 40 days in 2006) and Javi Garcia (Leeds, 71 days in 2023).

Leeds, meanwhile, were relegated after finishing the 2022-23 season in 19th place out of 20 teams in the EPL with seven wins, 10 draws and 21 losses (31 points). They lost 1-4 at home to Tottenham on the final day of the season after a lethargic performance.토토사이트

With their season on the line, Leeds appointed Allardyce as manager with four games to go, hoping to bounce back, but it didn’t happen.

They drew one and lost three of their final four games to suffer relegation. This is their second season in the second tier, three years after winning promotion from the Championship (second tier) in the 2019-20 season.
