The numbers behind Sam Allardyce's contract at Leeds United are mind blowing

BIG SAM IS COMING BACK, and it looks like he's going to be earning a mighty fine bag of money for returning to the Premier League, and even more if he can stay there.

Whoever had Sam Allardyce being back in Premier League management on their season bingo card must have been getting worried they wouldn't be filling in their card any time soon.

Last time we saw the former England manager, remember that, in a position was in the very forgettable behind closed doors era, back in 2021, as he got West Bromwich Albion relegated.

But the absolute shambles that are Leeds United means that we're getting one more round of Allardicio in England's top tier of football.

Clearly Leeds fans aren't exactly excited by the prospect of having the former Bolton Wanderers' boss in charge at Elland Road, something Laura Woods found hilarious.

The 68-year-old is going to need to have an instant impact at the club, because he only has four games to save them from dropping into the Championship.

And if he manages to do that then, according to the Times, he will be earning a £2.5 million bonus, with the team currently only above the relegation zone on goal difference.

Before that possibility though, Allardyce will be bringing home £500,000 just for his three weeks at the club, or over £166,666-per-week.

The soon-to-be Leeds boss is expected to bring former Oxford United manager Karl Robinson in as his assistant until the end of the campaign.

Allardyce is usually followed to pretty much all of his jobs by Sammy Lee, but the former Liverpool player is currently on jury duty so won't be joining this time.

Of course, despite sacking director of football Victor Orta on Tuesday, the Yorkshire club haven't actually got rid of Javi Gracia as yet.

The current boss only joined in February, after Jesse Marsch was sacked less than a year after he took over from Marcelo Bielsa.

Under Gracia, Leeds conceded a record breaking 23 goals in April, so it's no wonder that Leeds are considering getting rid of the manager.

Allardyce had never suffered a relegation in his managerial career, often being considered a survival specialist, until he went to West Brom.
