England Manager caught on camera offering advice on FA transfer rules bypass

Sam Allardyce was caught giving advice to businessmen on how to bypass the FA rules on football transfers.

During two meetings with the businessmen (actual Telegraph reporters) Big Sam explained how they can bypass rules that prohibit third parties “owning” players. The experienced manager told them it was “not a problem” to bypass rules introduced by FA in 2008.

Sam went on to make fun of his predecessor Hodgson’s speech impediment, and said he “hasn’t got the personality” for public speaking.
