Sam Allardyce Rejects Newcastle United's Approach To Replace Rafael Benitez

Sam Allardyce has turned down the chance to return to Newcastle United as the club's manager after rejecting their approach to replace Rafael Benitez.

Allardyce, who was in charge of the Magpies from 2007 to 2008, was considered as a potential replacement for Benitez who left when his contract expired in June.

But the former England manager declined an opportunity to speak to the club.

"I was very flattered that I was considered but it's that thing, don't go back," he revealed.

"It never got to the type of talks people are suggesting but it wasn't for me. I politely said 'no'.

"I never got to talk to Mike (Ashley, owner of the club). My agent contacted me, I had a think about it and a quick look at the situation and thanked them very much but (it's) not for me.
