After surviving yet another relegation test, Sam Allardyce has called his time at Crystal Palace after less than one season.
Contrary to initial reports, Allardyce said he is resigning in order to spend more time with his family and get away from managing, not due to a dispute over the club's transfer budget and future plans. His exit marks the end of a turbulent year that started with earning, then losing his job as England manager before starting on at Palace in December. Said Allardyce: "It’s hard walking away now. I think the club are heading in the right direction with a hugely supportive board of directors, a great squad of players and some of the most passionate fans I’ve ever met. It’s been a privilege to have worked here for the past five months...This is the right time for me. I have no ambitions to take another job, I simply want to be able to enjoy all the things you cannot really enjoy with the 24/7 demands of managing any football club, let alone one in the Premier League."
