Michael Owen delivers two-word Twitter verdict as England prepare to appoint Sam Allardyce
Michael Owen reacts to news that the FA will appoint Sam Allardyce as the next England manager
Michael Owen summarised the thoughts of many supporters with a two-word tweet after the British media reported that Sam Allardyce will become the new England manager.
BBC Sport are claiming that the Sunderland boss will be confirmed as the new Three Lions manager within the next 24 hours.
Roy Hodgson stood down as manager after his side suffered a humiliating 2-1 defeat by Iceland in the last 16 of the European championship.
Allardyce led Sunderland to Premier League safety last season just nine months after taking over the reins at the Stadium of Light.
The 61-year-old has previously managed Bolton Wanderers, Blackburn Rovers, Newcastle United, West Ham and Sunderland.
However, former England striker Owen doesn’t appear convinced by the Football Association’s anticipated appointment of Allardyce.
