“I’m not suited to Bolton or Blackburn,Ã¢â‚¬Â said Allardyce. Ã¢â‚¬Å“I would be more suited to Inter Milan or Real Madrid. It wouldn’t be a problem to me to go and manage those clubs because I would win the double or the league every time.
“Give me Manchester United or Chelsea and I would do the same, it wouldn’t be a problem. It’s not where I’m suited to, it’s just where I’ve been for most of the time.
He added: “It’s not a problem to take me into the higher reaches of the Champions League or Premier League and would make my job a lot easier in winning it.”
The Blackburn boss, who spent less than a year at Newcastle before taking over at Ewood Park in 2008, insists neither he nor Mark HughesÃ¢â‚¬â€who was sacked as Manchester City boss in December 2009Ã¢â‚¬â€were given enough time to fully prove themselves at bigger clubs.
“His [HughesÃ¢â‚¬â„¢] Manchester City reign obviously was not long enough,” he continued. “A little bit like me at Newcastle, but I didn’t last quite as long as Sparky though.
“He was given the chance and unfortunately at that stage of his career they decided to have a change.
“You look back on it and he’ll be very disappointed because they only lost two games I think. But that is the way it is sometimes, there’s a perception that other people can do better than you, but often the reality is not the case.
He added: “He decided that Fulham was the place for him, he’s taken over what he’s described in his own words as a very good team and he’s started where they left off last season.”
The two British managers go head-to-head this weekend with HughesÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ Fulham travelling to the northwest to face Blackburn on Saturday.
