Sam Allardyce is considering taking legal action against the Daily Telegraph

Former England manger Sam Allardyce is considering legal action after the publication of a report into the undercover newspaper investigation which led to him losing his job as England manager.
The Independent Press Standards Organisation (IPSO) has ruled that the Daily Telegraph's investigation was justified as it was in the public interest, but also that elements of the report were inaccurate.

The FA dismissed Allardyce from the role in September 2016, just 67 days after his appointment.

He said "Had the FA stuck to their word and waited to see the Telegraph's evidence (as they originally told me they would), they would have seen that the allegations made against me were false. It was of course the allegations about third-party ownership that the FA stated were the reasons for my leaving. It was clear that those that I was dealing with were more concerned with their own image than getting to the truth of what had occurred. I will consider my position in this regard with my lawyers."
