Sam Allardyce declares himself ‘as good as’ Guardiola, Klopp

Sam Allardyce made his return to management after two years away yesterday – and boasted: I am as good as Pep Guardiola and Jurgen Klopp.

The 68-year-old has been tasked with keeping Leeds United in the Premier League after replacing Javi Gracia as the club’s boss for the final four games of the season.

Allardyce admits he is taking on the ‘biggest challenge’ of his career and that avoiding relegation would be the greatest of his great escapes given how little time he has to turn things around.

But Big Sam said: ‘Far too many people think I am old and antiquated, which is so far from the truth.

‘I might be 68 and look old but there’s nobody ahead of me in football terms. Not Pep, not Klopp, not Arteta. It’s all there with me.

They do what they do, I do what I do. But in terms of knowledge and depth of knowledge, I’m up there with them. I’m not saying I’m better than them, but certainly as good as they are.’
